OVERNELL-CARTER, Julie





The Butterflies’ Promise (Annick, $15.95)
Info



When Milly’s grandpa suffers a stroke in Julie Overnell-Carter’s The Butterflies’ Promise (Annick, $15.95), he must leave his home and his garden and move to a nursing home. But his family builds him a “wheelchair garden.” Soon Milly and Grandpa are gardening together again. For a beautiful ending to their summer, the monarch butterflies arrive. Kitty Macaulay uses watercolours to portray the tender grandparent-child relationship; plus there’s back-page information on butterfly-attracting plants. 1-55037-567-9
