“In this evocative graphic novel, a grandmother recounts her childhood experiences hiding from the Nazis in World War II France. Surrounded by cruelty, Dounia also benefited from the exceptional kindness and courage of her protectors. The telling of her story to her grandchild brings healing and hope.”
When warships appear, in “I Lived on Butterfly Hill,” Celeste's idyllic life is shattered. As people disappear, Celeste's parents go into hiding, and she is sent into exile. When she returns home, she works to reunite people she loves and to move her country forward. Lyrically written by acclaimed poet, Marjorie Agosín, this Chilean story offers a refreshing perspective on resiliency.
