Midwest Book Review
Deftly written by Mary Baca Haque, Madalynn The Monarch Butterfly And Her Quest To Michoacan is a bilingual storybook (Francisco Lancaster-Jones ably translates the English text into Spanish) for children ready to make the transition from picturebooks to more involved tales. Tracing the flight of a monarch butterfly and the fascinating array of wild creatures she meets during her long migration, Madalynn The Monarch Butterfly And Her Quest To Michoacan is an engaging read warmly illustrated with black-and-white drawings by Emily du Houx.
