“The Painter’s Butterfly has beautifully flowing, descriptive prose with a sense of urgency that keeps kids reading and asking those important questions, while teaching vocabulary and, more importantly, empathy.”

~Lisa Borne Graves, author of Celestial Sphere series and The Immortal Transcripts series


“The Painter's Butterfly is a gorgeous coming-of-age adventure steeped in magical realism. The prose is poetic and lyrical, but written in a way that is easy to understand for a pre-teen audience. The whole book fills the reader with a sense of the warm fuzzies, and the gentle story is masterfully told through the characters' slowly revealed pasts. It is truly a story of hurt and comfort, with a touch of magic and a sense of belonging. It's the perfect book to curl up with by a warm fire and get lost in for a while.”

~Sarah McKnight, author of Life Support
