Deep in the woods there used to be a house where a family once lived. Over there was the chimney. Just imagine little toes warming up beside it. And see those daffodils? Someone took special care to plant and tend to them so that every spring they blossomed as brightly as the year before.
Both the house and the family are gone now, but if you go to that spot in the woods, you'll find the chimney and the flowers. Then all you have to do is close your eyes and imagine...
With Crescent Dragonwagon's poetic text and Jerry Pinkney's rich watercolors, past and present briefly touch in this remarkable book.
"This is a most remarkable and beautiful book — it swims along fluidly, back and forth in time . . . As a family hikes in the woods, they happen upon the ruins of a home that existed long ago. But as the ordinary becomes extraordinary, we journey dreamily back to a time when another family lived and loved in this very same place". — American Bookseller
