West Hollywood, CA, December 10, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Colorful illustrations take young readers on a high-flying story of hope and giving in author Greg Wachs’ recent kid’s book, Black Butterfly, now available on Amazon.
“My new book is the story of kids helping one another while experiencing their wildest dreams,” Wachs explained. “The magical Black Butterfly gives three children the gift of flight for just one day, and together they open their hearts to a young boy dealing with the loss of beloved family members. It’s a story of hope, caring, sharing, friendship and empathy for people whose lives are different from ours.”
The story begins with Madison, Fin and Anabelle, who all have problems that make them wish they could fly away. Then a magic Black Butterfly offers each the chance to follow this dream for a single day as long with the condition that they will help Maxito, little boy far away, in Juxta, Guatemala, by seeing the world through his eyes. The three children fly with the butterfly and help Maxito; the empathy and friendship the four children experience helps them all understand that supporting one another is the best way to deal with adversity.
The artful illustrations are the creation Vera Orlova, an artist and illustrator who works mostly in watercolor. She Lives in Kyiv, Ukraine, and is a student at Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture.
