Overview

Once there was a redwood tree one of the world's largest and tallest trees, and one of the oldest. And once, born nearly a thousand years after the tree first took root, there was a girl named Julia, who was called Butterfly.

When exploring her beloved forest, Butterfly wandered into a grove of ancient trees. One tree had broken branches and a big blue "X" on the side. It was going to be chopped down. Butterfly climbed up into the tree. A tree wouldn't be cut down if it had a person living in it. This is the story of Julia Butterfly Hill and Luna, the redwood tree she lived in for two years, never once coming down. That is, not until Luna's future was safe."

Kostecki-Shaw’s mixed-media artwork portrays activist Julia Butterfly Hill as a childlike figure wearing a bandana and yellow dress as she takes up residence for two years in the branches of Luna, an ancient California redwood, to save the tree from logging. The third-person narrative shifts between Butterfly’s point of view (“Living 180 feet high in a tree wasn’t easy. Her tree house was the size of a sandbox”) and that of the tree (“Welcome, Little Butterfly. You are brave to have ventured up so high!”). A warm, appealing snapshot of this environmental activist. Ages 5–9. Agency: Worley-Shoemaker Literary Management. (May)
