Descripción

The tropical forest is full of dangers, but Bella, the butterfly, is very daring and is not afraid of anything. One day she gets up close to the elephants splashing in the water and she sees herself in a situation she can’t control. Bella asks for help, but no one can help her. In the end help comes, thanks to the aid of an unexpected character… It is difficult for a daring and adventurous butterfly to pay heed to advice and warnings… Luckily, we always find some friend ready to lend a hand to get over the difficulties and, of course, a mother’s unconditional support and understanding. The author, inspired after a trip to an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka, writes this story with a simple and tender argument in which questions such as the need for caution, the importance of friendship, solidarity and the difficult learning process in infancy, are asked. With great expression, and harmony between the text and illustrations, the album manages to get the reader identified with the character, experiment the adventures and stimulate good feelings. In order to attract and induce the reader easily, Rachel Chaundler uses the present and a short text, but sufficient to convey the story efficiently, and for emotion to be present on every page. Bernardo Carvalho creates his illustrations to get the maximum out of silk-screen printing; working in solid, brilliant and happy colours in a range of dyes that contrast and complement his earlier work with the same writer, composing scenes with dynamic, clear strokes, creating affectionate characters that provoke sympathy in the reader.
