The Wonder of the White Butterfly
For ages 12-up... Over the span of almost seventy days between August and October, 2010, the world was focused on a small mine in Chile, where thirty-three miners were trapped thousands of feet below the earth's surface. "The Wonder of the White Butterfly" tells this story, keeping in tandem with Todd J. Barry's other writings on hope and inspiration. Filled with suspense, young readers, and readers of all ages, will not want to take their eyes off the pages. It is a beautifully written, in-depth tale of joy and hope based on real facts of an amazing historical event, and a look at the miners' fortunate happenstances, accompanied by the brilliant illustrations of Linda McCarthy. In the tradition of Chilean folklore, each reader will be left wondering whether it was a mysterious white butterfly, that some say was a wonderful, magical, guardian angel, or spirit guardian, which led to the miners' safety and their eventual, remarkable rescue.
