Yellow Butterfly: Russian-Ukrainian war wordless picture book

    Yellow Butterfly: A Story From Ukraine is so reminiscent of  Akiyuki Nosaka’s Grave of the Fireflies. Writer and illustrator Oleksandr Shatokhin’s wordless poetic story use of a child in a war situation is heartbreaking even in symbolic form.
