Maria the Monarch

Two courageous girls uncover a dangerous scheme in a mystical tale of butterfly queens, fluttering souls, and environmental conservation. In a story translated from its original Spanish and set amid the jewel-toned majesty of the yearly migration of millions of monarch butterflies from Canada to Mexico, eleven-year-olds Erendira and Corina champion the delicate kaleidoscope when its winter hibernation on the branches of the oyamel trees is threatened by poachers destroying the peaceful sanctuary.
