On the eve of a killing frost in the Midwest, Mariosa, and her son Antwan Ramar find an injured Monarch butterfly. They take her in and become a family, that is recognized in their small town. They learn something special from Madame (the name they gave her) butterfly and they build an extraordinary circle of love.
For many years I told this true life story to many people and they would also say, ” why don’t you write a children’s book with that story. So when I moved to San Miguel de Allende in 2010 I took 8 months and wrote and illustrated this story. I self published it through a website called Createspace. https://www.createspace.com/3550337
I created a website. http://madamesjourneyhome.blogspot.com/
and maintain a Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/mariosamariosa/photos_stream
This is where I post a lot of information about Monarch Butterflies.
The book is available in Spanish and English and here in San Miguel de Allende I usually have copies you can buy directly from me.
