It’s finally summer at Shear Heaven Ranch, and Sophie and Scottie are looking forward to swimming in the cool ponds, climbing the huge oak trees, riding their horses, and taking care of their ewe, Fuzzy Mama. Scottie tells Sophie that she feels as if “something is going to happen to us,” and says they should both be alert to things on their ranch that don’t seem normal. So when Mr. Wilson delivers a special package from their globetrotting and eccentric Auntie Jill, they can’t wait to open it! Inside is a magical, multicolor crystal frame with a letter attached explaining that this special gift will show them “many places.” This mysterious present makes the girls wonder what the letter means and if an adventure is ahead.

As night falls on Shear Heaven, the photo in the frame of the strangely familiar Rancho de La Joya hotel starts to move! Will Sophie and Scottie follow the call to adventure? Will they leap into the portal that will transport them thousands of miles away to solve a mystery in Mexico? And will they learn to rely on their instincts with a rather mischievous map that doesn’t trust grownups?

An enchanting story highlighting the beauty and balance of nature, the Mexican culture, and the bravery that girls can display, especially when they work together, Sophie and Scottie’s Adventures of the Monarch Mystery will delight fans of magic and mystery of all ages.

The story of this book is one that is rich, vivid, and impeccable and a story that will surely captivate young minds with its vivid descriptions and engaging characters. The story is one that I adore for many reasons but the reason I love this book the most… besides the incredible literature, courtesy of Cindy Murray is the fact that poignant themes are laced throughout the book. Topics such as protecting animals as well as the environment are all themes that are entirely weaved throughout the entertaining story. I admire that Murray has so perfectly laced these profound themes throughout her book as it will encourage readers to think about such topics and hopefully inspire young readers to protect the environment and animals always, even in their adult life.

I personally love when a children’s book involves poignant themes as they can change the way young readers think and inspire them to act and so I really do admire Cindy Murray for including this in her extraordinary tale.

Cindy Murray is not only an excellent writer for the themes she explores throughout her story, but she is also brilliant thanks to her stunning literature. The vivid descriptions courtesy of Murray are beautiful and will dazzle and captivate young minds; the descriptions, especially of the butterflies in this book are magnificent and will have young readers thinking vividly, and this is a hard talent to accomplish with a children’s book.
