More from Ontario here - Elly Mackay is launching her third children's book 'Butterfly Park' today.
'Butterfly Park' features a little girl who is new to the town and finds the park lacking butterflies - it becomes her mission to get the community involved to get the butterflies to return to the park, and in so doing makes the butterflies and herself feel at home.
You really do need to see the illustrations, an incredible three dimensional affect is achieved by photographing a theatre style arrangement of a series of painted illustrations. The effect is really quite mesmerising, with the touch of the Edwardian theatre about it.
You can see more of how this is achieved at Elly's website http://www.ellymackay.com, you can spend hours marvelling at the creations and process in this paper theatre.
