A beloved classic is lovelier than ever!Barbara Cooneys 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 twotime Caldecott winner Barbara Cooneys bestloved book, Viking has reoriginated the illustrations, going back to the original art to ensure stateoftheart reproduction of Cooneys exquisite artwork.
