How did a butterfly that originated in the American Tropics, get all the way to Aotearoa, New Zealand?

Have you ever wondered about the extraordinary Monarch butterflies of New Zealand? How did they get here? Do they migrate? How did they find the food they needed to survive in a new land?

Monarchs of Aotearoa is a book that explores the journey of the Monarch butterfly to New Zealand.  Read along to wonder about the mysteries of these brave travellers.  

All copies of Monarchs of Aotearoa sold from the New Zealand Family Shop will be signed by the author Erin Willson.  If you want the book addressed to certain names, enter these names on checkout when you see the option "Order special instructions".  Email with any questions or issues.
