Red Tin Box

  • Like modern-day Miss Rumphius and her promise to make the world a more beautiful place, this luminous story brings the scope of a lifetime into focus for a young reader and fills it with the magic of gifts given and received. This moving and radiant story of the relationship between a grandmother and granddaughter, and the joy and promise passed down between them, begins one quiet dawn . . .
    On the morning of her eighth birthday,
    Maude buries a secret
    at the foot of a flowering dogwood-
    and inside it,
    a tiny toy elephant,
    a marble like a tiger's eye,
    a bird's nest with purple string woven through the twigs,
    and more.

    A special box.
    A gift, waiting for the right moment to be opened again.

    At once lyrical and profound, this enchantingly illustrated book is a joyful celebration of intergenerational relationships and of the secret treasures of childhood. Young readers and adults will delight in the memories and magic tucked away in the red tin box.
