Butterfly Summer: Quest to Save the Monarchs (Hardcover)
(This book cannot be returned.)
Skylar Maroni's parents said inheriting great-grandpa's house, and leaving Chicago to live in the countryside, would be a life-changing event. Sky agreed, just not quite the way her parents hoped, making her realize something important - kids' opinions don't count. Because kids aren't doing important things that make a difference, nobody really listens to them.
In her new home, Sky fights loneliness by exploring the fields and meadows, with only her pesky little brother Scout, for company. There, she discovers the plight of the vanishing monarch butterflies. Their numbers are going down so fast that experts fear within a few years monarch butterflies could be wiped out of North America - forever.
Deciding they can't let that happen, Sky and Scout begin a quest to save the monarchs and make a difference in the world. But, they soon find saving them is much harder than they ever expected. Can they do it? Follow Sky and Scout on their quest, and learn how you, too, can help save the monarchs...
