Glasswings: A Butterfly’s Story

Elisa Kleven is by far one of the best children’s book writers I have had the pleasure of reading. My own child is far from the age group for this particular book but she still enjoyed it as did I. There is quite a bit of symbolism in the book that seems synonymous with human frailty and fears but written in such a way as to make it easy for a child to understand. 

As the little butterfly Claire, goes on her journey you float along with her and find yourself longing for a happy ending to her story. Children will no doubt love the tale and the illustrations are done in such a way as to be simplistic yet hold an imaginative beauty that speaks to the young and old. 

I would highly recommend this book to all readers, not just those of certain age.
