Enhanced with Susan Guevara's graceful and lively illustrations, Isabel's House Of Butterflies by Tony Johnston tells the story of a young girl who enjoys the sight of thousands of butterflies roosting in her favorite tree. As the weather turns cold butterflies fill the sky with vibrant color as they migrate deep into the warm southern forests of Michoacan, Mexico. But a long, dry year and a very cold winter will mean having to cut down the tree upon which those butterflies roost--unless Isabel can think of another way to save both her family and the "House of Butterflies". The flawless blending of pictures and text make Isabel's House Of Butterflies an enthusiastically recommended and enduringly popular addition to any school or community library collection.
