SAVING THE BUTTERFLY wins high praise from The Times and Observer New Review

Children's Books News

Saving the Butterfly by Helen Cooper and Gill Smith (Walker) is described as “A tender tale focusing on the aftermath of conflict, it’s a great companion to Nicola Davies’s memorable The Day War Came (2019),” in the Observer New Review. 

It was also included in The Times ‘One to watch out for list’ and says, “With illustrations that find sweetness in sadness, this touching picture book is the resonant story of refugee siblings who have lost everything but each other, and of the connection with a trapped butterfly that helps to heal the elder child.”

Saving the Butterfly was published on 3rd February by Walker Books.
