Isabel's House of Butterflies by Tony Johnston
Book DescriptionOutside her home in Mexico, grows eight-year-old Isabel's greatest treasure: an beautiful tree. Every autumn, a miracle happens - for Isabel's tree is the wintering place for thousands upon thousands of monarch butterflies that migrate from the north. But this wonder is in danger of disappearing forever. Isabel's family is poor, and it has been a cruel, dry year for her father's meagre crop of corn and beans. Soon, chopping down the tree to sell its wood may be the family's only hope for survival. What will happen to the butterflies then?Tony Johnston's poignant tale, as brief and luminous as the lives of the butterflies themselves, is all the more compelling because of the real-life dilemma it presents. Lush paintings by Susan Guevara radiate with the warmth and tenderness between Isabel and her family, and capture Mexican rural life in all its vibrant colour and natural beauty.
