What is “Solimar” about?

Just before her Quinceañera, and her official coronation, Solimar visits the oyamel forest to sit among the monarch butterflies. There something magical happens sending the butterflies humming and swirling around her.

After the magical frenzy, she realizes she’s been given a gift―and a burden: she can predict the near future! Then, tragedy strikes when a neighboring king invades while her father and brother are away. The villagers are taken hostage―except Solimar.

Can this princess-to-be save her family, the kingdom, and the future of the monarch butterflies from a greedy and dangerous king?
