When Great-aunt Alice was a young girl, she decided to go to faraway places when she grew up and live by the sea when she grew old. Her grandfather advised her to do something to make the world more beautiful, as well. Handsome full-color illustrations and varied page layouts show the landscapes and interiors of the long, satisfying life of Miss Rumphius, The Lupine Lady. (4-9 years)
