Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael loves his great-great-aunt Dew, even if she can't always remember his name. He especially loves to spend time with her and her beloved hundred penny box, listening to stories about each of the hundred years of her life. Michael's mother wants to throw out the battered old box that holds the pennies, but Michael understands that the box itself is as important to Aunt Dew as the memories it contains. Winner of a Newbery Honor, this beautiful story will be available in a collector's edition featuring heavy interior stock embossing and silver ink on the cover, and a thread-sewn binding for added durability. A timeless story of the relationship between a boy and his elderly relative, this new edition is one that families young and old will treasure for years to come.

Synopsis:

This Newbery Honor Book tells the story of "a boy and his hundred-year-old great-great-aunt in . . . a quietly intense story, illustrated with sepia pictures that make dramatic use of chiaroscuro" ("The Horn Book"). Two-color illustrations.
