Miss Rumphius story and pictures by Barbara Cooney

Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney
Format: Hardcover

I grew up reading this book but I had forgotten she was a librarian until my mother reminded me recently.  So of course I had to go back and read it.  I have always loved Barabara Cooney’s books and her illustrations  are enchanting.  I wish I could remember what made me love it so much as a child.  Was I aware of the magic of possibility proposed?  Okay I will admit she is presented as the little old maid librarian who keeps the books shelved.  It makes me think about my own life.  What is the point?  I mean sure I am tempted to spread lupine seeds across my college campus but that is not original.  What can I do to make the world more beautiful?
