Cover Reveal – Paper Butterflies by Lisa Heathfield


In light of the brilliant Waterstones book prize being announced on Thursday this week, 17th March 2016, the lovely people at Electric Monkey thought that it would be the perfect time to share a very exciting final cover reveal!

You can find out more about the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2016 and the shortlist here where Seed by Lisa Heathfield amongst other brilliant books have been shortlisted!

It’s no secret that I read and loved Seed by Lisa Heathfield last year!

You can read my review here

I, as well have others, have been waiting in anticipation for Lisa’s next book a standalone called Paper Butterflies ever since it was announced!

I squealed with delight when the proof copy arrived through my door last month!

pbproofI was also so excited to see a quote from my review of Seed inside the proof!  The first time this has happened to me since I started blogging!


I have read and loved Paper Butterflies so much!  I had Paper Butterflies fluttering in my tummy.  An emotional tale of an abusive childhood, growing up, friendship, love, forgiveness and choosing left or right.

My full review of Paper Butterflies will follow shortly on Tales, but first lets gets down to business!

I am so over the moon to reveal the final beautiful cover for Paper Butterflies by Lisa Heathfield!

A very early version of this cover was sent out with the press release and on Goodreads I think, but this is the final version, front, back and spine designed again by the brilliant Benjamin Hughes and complete with a very special quote……

9781405275392LH_PButterflies_75392_COVpbspinepbbackI LOVE this cover so much!

I think it captures so many things about this wonderful book!  The paper butterfly, June’s face, the faint outline of the woods and caravan on the back of the cover and a beautiful spine!

I cannot wait to see it on the shelves on the 30th June 2016!
