Overview

Madalynn la mariposa monarca y su aventura por Michaocán

Journey with Madalynn in English and Spanish as she migrates to Mexico.

Study guides in Spanish and English

With 27 black and white illustrations, including accurate pictures of the birds that Madalynn meets, and with the bird calls cleverly worked into the English dialogue and both study guides, this book is an enjoyable teaching tool.

From the bilingual introduction by Guillermo Castilleja,Vice-president for Latin America & the Caribbean, World Wildlife Fund:

"This wonderful book that you are about to start reading will tell you the story of a brave monarch butterfly named Madalynn and her quest through North America to the pristine mountains of Michoacan."

"Este maravilloso libro que estas a punto de leer, cuenta la historia de una valiente mariposa monarca llamada Madalynn y su aventura a través de Norte América hasta las preciosas montañas de Michoacán."


The Author:
Mary Baca Haque grew up in the northern suburbs of Illinois with her nine brothers and sisters. She currently resides in Jalisco, Mexico, with Khalila (14), Khyaam (13), and her husband of fourteen years. Her children and a very diversified life inspired her to write a series of stories that, "not only capture a young imagination but also teach of diversity and acceptance in the animal world, as we have in the human world." Her next book, entitled Tashi the Tibetan Antelope Makes New Friends, is one of the series which brings attention to the endangered animals on the Tibetan Plateau and teaches of acceptance and prejudice. She wishes to create, "books that introduce children to new worlds, just by the turn of a page." She has also recently written and published the humorous essay, "Adventure with Husband."

The Translator:
Francisco Lancaster-Jones, teaches such subjects as Cultural Shock, World History, Translation, and Lexicography at the graduate program of Translation and Interpretation at the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara. He has translated the Oxford Children's Encyclopedia as well as numerous technical books. At UAG he has been Assistant Director of International Programs, Director of the Center for Canadian Studies, and Director of North American Mobility Programs.

The Illustrator:
Emily Cornell du Houx, born in Barnstaple, North Devon, England, lived in London, Glastonbury, and Forres, Scotland, before moving to Maine in 1991 when her parents returned to the United States. She graduated salutatorian in 2002 from Carrabec High School in North Anson, Maine, and is now attending Amherst College in Massachusetts. Ever since she could read, Emily has been attracted to the law and looks forward to studying law in graduate school. Art is one of the many interests Emily has pursued from childhood. In addition to Madalynn the Monarch Butterfly, she has utilized her talent for Polar Bear & Company through various projects, including the illustrated novel, Manitou, a Mythological Journey in Time and A Voice for the Redwoods. Since arriving at Amherst she has been illustrating a book for students by her Japanese language professor.
