Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"As a child (Alice Rumphius) dreamed of travel... and of a house by the sea; but Grandfather had made one further request: 'You must do something to make the world more beautiful.' The simple story is accompanied by glowing pictures." The Horn Book. American Book Award. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Cooney's beloved American Book Award winner now comes to Puffin Storytime. The package comes with an audio CD with a professional reading of this beloved story. Full color.

Synopsis:

As a child, Great-Aunt Alice Rumphius resolved that when she grew up she would go to faraway places, live by the sea in her old age, and do something to make the world more beautiful — and she does all those things, the last being the most difficult of all.

Synopsis:

A beloved classic—written by a beloved Caldecott winner—is lovelier than ever!

Barbara Cooney's story of Alice Rumphius, who longed to travel the world, live in a house by the sea, and do something to make the world more beautiful, has a timeless quality that resonates with each new generation. The countless lupines that bloom along the coast of Maine are the legacy of the real Miss Rumphius, the Lupine Lady, who scattered lupine seeds everywhere she went. Miss Rumphius received the American Book Award in the year of publication.

To celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of two-time Caldecott winner Barbara Cooney's best-loved book, the illustrations have been reoriginated, going back to the original art to ensure state-of-the-art reproduction of Cooney's exquisite artwork. The art for Miss Rumphius has a permanent home in the Bowdoin College Museum of Art.

About the Author

Like Miss Rumphius, the late Barbara Cooney traveled the world, lived in a house by the sea in Maine, and, through her art, made the world more beautiful.
