Malibu resident and children’s author Karen Smythe last week was named the children’s non-fiction winner of the fourth annual Beverly Hills Book Awards.

Smythe won for her 2015 book, “Fredrick the Butterfly,” which she said was inspired when she and her daughter rescued a butterfly on the Jersey Shore nearly 25 years ago.
