Winged Wonders 

Solving the Monarch Migration Mystery


(Sleeping Bear Press, 2020)


This award-winning book asks the question: who tracked the Great Monarch Butterfly Migration?


Through questions, and a sprinkle of mystery, this picture book introduces young readers to all the people from Canada to Mexico who figured out the details of the monarchs' miraculous yearly journey. (Especially the folks who are often forgotten!)

Once the mystery is solved, readers are asked a new question: who will keep the monarchs alive? This leads to back matter with many ideas for kids to take part in helping these amazing creatures and the environment that sustains them.
