TATE Publishing

The Butterfly House by Sarah Smith is a really special book that can be read in a whimsical way or used as a great tool of inspiration to help children learn about death.  A story about life passing and change beautifully (really beautifully) illustrated and presented for children. 

Jack, Lizzy and their naughty cat, Cat, are off to spend the afternoon with their grandmother. But Georgina Fiona-May Orbis is no ordinary grandmother: she lives in a house full of butterflies! Georgina also has a secret – she knows how to turn into a butterfly…

The Butterfly House is a charming story of friendship between children and their grandparents from one of the youngest talents in British illustration, Sarah Smith. The book’s richly textured illustrations and delightful details will capture the imaginations of young and old alike.
