In its wake it left 161 people dead and over 7000 homes and businesses in ruin.

Many stories surfaced about young children reporting that during the tornado, angelic Butterfly People came to their aid and saved them from imminent death.

The Story of the Butterfly People of Joplin, Missouri has touched hearts, and continues to touch hearts from all over the globe.

A lady living on the other side of the state to Joplin, in St. Charles, Missouri, suggested to her husband over the supper table that a story book tribute to mark and commemorate the event for the people of Joplin could be a great idea. Her husband shared the idea with his brother, a publsher in England.

From the supper table in St. Charles to the breakfast table in Hampshire, England, the idea of a fitting storybook tribute began to take form.

I’d like to thank Carolyn for literally living through the story with me in more ways than one. Thank-you.

I’d also like to thank Deepali for her glorious, moving, and touching illustrations. She has done a superb job- and Deepali if you read this – Thank-you for putting some ‘good’ life energy and alot of heart into Aaron’s Star.
