Follow the monarch butterfly as it chases spring north from its winter home in Mexico to its birthplace in Ontario, Canada. Flying through unpredictable spring weather, the butterfly lays its eggs along the way. The young monarch finally emerges from its chrysalis in late May - during the moon of the monarch butterflies.

In Thirteen Moons - a spellbinding wildlife series - Newbery Award-winning author Jean Craighead George has captured 13 North American animals in their natural environments and chronicled their fight for survival. From the lush Everglades to the snowy Alaskan tundra, this series explores the intricate relationships among animals, plants, and the ever-changing environment in which they live. A favorite of adults and children alike, George's entertaining and educational tales of nature alive and in action - Julie, Shark Beneath the Reef, and Julie of the Wolves - have thrilled listeners for a generation. Barbara Caruso's inspired narration captures the vitality of life in the wild, and will leave you awed by this delicate creature's indomitable will to live.
