Review of Theodora the Butterfly
Importance of the Character, Theodora, the Monarch Butterfly
Theodora is an important character in the Science Fiction novel of Legacy of the Skull Master by SM Rodgers. The butterfly in the story actually tells about one of the events in the author's real life that got her into some serious trouble on the farm. The little girl named Sandy and her cousin named Neil went fishing in grandma's fish pond. Theodora tells about two kids, and how they caused her best friend Adrianna to lose her life as a butterfly. The story tells that Sandy wanted to go fishing for goldfish in her grandmother's goldfish pond. The pond was actually one of those cement ponds the size of a bath tub. She never saw any goldfish there, but she was determined to fish the leaf covered pool anyway. Sandy was taken with butterflies, and so she caught one, and the rest is history. I can definitely say her grandmother was quite upset, and it was not exactly about the butterfly but the outcome of the events. I would suggest reading the book, because I do not want to give away Theodora's fun of telling you about what Sandy and Neil did on the farm..
This all has to do with metamorphosis, and how two kids could have changed history by messing up the life process of metamorphosis. Theodora is a unique character, because she is the only insect to get a special place in this book. She was a Monarch Butterfly. and she was suppose to be the most regal of all the butterflies. She chose her destiny to protect all the butterflies that would come forth in the future generations. Her job was a legacy and a destiny. It was protecting the butterfly from the larvae to the most magnificently butterfly being in the insect world.
Butterflies are far more important than entertainment for two children to have fun catching and playing with them. We look at our environment and realize that besides the honey bee that butterflies have a significant purpose. They assist in pollinating our agricultural crops. The honey bee population is in serious jeopardy, and it is important that butterflies are allowed to go through their metamorphosis,and then they can became helpers.in our food chain.
