The Butterfly
( (by Patricia Polacco), Philomel $16.99 Score: ) In the dark of night a "ghost" of a girl appears in Monique's bedroom. But she is no ghost! Set in Nazi occupied France, this suspenseful story tells of the terror, courage, and friendship of a French family that helped a Jewish family hide and escape. Based on true events, Polacco's artful blend of image and story are bittersweet reminders of a cruel time when even butterflies were not free. 7 & up.
