When the wolrd seems sad and family is so far away, a single butterfly can make all the difference. In the 11th story in the Nanabosho series, Joe and Matrine weave a funny and touching story of how the legendary friend and trickster created beautiful butterflies — "bringing wonder and laughter to children everywhere."
