“Hi Bette,

I thought you’d like to see this picture… My younger granddaughter Bianca and I enjoyed Amazing Matilda very much. Even though she was tired, after whole day at her daycare she still wanted to hear the whole story. Then, next day, she brought the book to me and wanted to hear it again. Thank you for such an AMAZING book.” ~ Vida Sreta Zuljevic

Every year monarch butterflies begin a journey north from their overwintering grounds in Mexican forests. The epic migration spans generations and the better part of a continent. And it touches the lives of countless scientists and citizens.

Seven things about me…
My kitty’s name is “Midnight,” and she is a marvel!
My husband and soul-mate is a super-hero in my book!
I am passionate about nature and collect everything from birds’ nests to barnacle-encrusted seashells.
I love art and collect ‘art finds’ discovered at yard sales and thrift shops.
For me, the pleasure of gardening includes nurturing milkweed to grow among my flowers. Monarch butterflies deposit their eggs and before long these lovely creatures emerge from their cocoons—amazing monarchs are right here to inspire me all summer long.
I am a writer who enjoys listening to and learning from the people around me.
Lobster is one of my favorite foods.
