'Magical', 'evocative' and a 'masterclass in children's writing and illustrating' are just a few words that have been used to describe this stunning book. And yes, you should believe the hype.

Inspired by the author's own observations of the butterflies just outside her window, comes a story of a child's enchantment with the small cabbage white. They dance by the dozens among the flowers, slowly disappearing when shadows grow long.

As sleep calls, our little one wonders, "Where do butterflies go at night?"

Read an Excerpt

As clouds tumbled over blue mid-morning skies, 

I spotted a crowd of small white butterflies. 


I watched them sip nectar from thousands of flowers 

And waltz 'round the branches in sun-sparkled hours. 


They danced until dusk, shadows silently grew, 

As flutter by flutter, they faded from view.
