When Ellie is visited in the night by a strange and colorful
little creature called Belfy, she begins an adventure that leads
her as far away as the wild ocean and as near at hand as the
local park. Without ever leaving her bedroom, she meets
brave sea captains, the lonely souls of the city and the birds
and squirrels that hide in the treetops.
Through these encounters Ellie learns that
monsters and angels come with a thousand faces
and that the horizon is never as far away as it seems.
“The sun shone for you that day
and that same night the moon
and the stars lit up the sky only
for you. That was the day you
were born; that was your first
night in this world.
Sheila woke one day to find the
color had drained from the world.
At first she was heartbroken.
Then she had an idea.
“The trick is to enjoy the senses,”
said Butterfly. “Love each sunset,
all the delicious smells
and every charming song.
Don’t worry about what’s been lost;
cherish everything you have.”
