(Paperback - Nov 1985)
$7.99 - Online Price

Overview

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.
