Alice made a promise to make the world a more beautiful place, then a seed of an idea is planted and blossoms into a fantastic plan. This beloved classic and celebration of nature—written by a beloved Caldecott winner—is lovelier than ever!
Barbara Cooney’s story of Alice Rumphius, who longed to trip the world, live in a house by the ocean, and do something to make the world more beautiful, has a timeless quality that resonates with each and every new generation. The countless lupines that bloom along the coast of Maine are the legacy of the actual Miss Rumphius, the Lupine Lady, who scattered lupine seeds in every single place she went. Miss Rumphius received the American Book Award within the year of publication.
The illustrations have been reoriginated, going back to the unique art to verify state of the art reproduction of Cooney’s exquisite artwork. The art for Miss Rumphius has a permanent home within the Bowdoin College Museum of Art.
