One summer morning, a flock of butterflies alights on John Farrington's house and changes his life forever. Surrounding John in his yard, the monarchs ask for his help. They have lost their way. The green places are gone--the meadows have become mini-malls; the forests are now parking lots. Can John lead them to another refuge?
Passionate, moving, and inspiring, this glorious flight of fantasy from master storyteller Bruce Coville is a timely fable about the difficulties--and the rewards--of staying true to one’s heart.

One boy’s life-changing summer, when he flew on borrowed wings.


Baker & Taylor
When the monarch butterflies discover that their meadows are now malls and parking lots, they turn to a young boy named John for help in finding a new place that they can call home. 30,000 first printing.
