Miss Rumphius, by Barbara Cooney (1917-2000)
This book is about Miss Rumphius. When she was little she wanted to go to other places. When she grew up she went to the sea, another house and other lands.
I loved this book because it was all about life. My favourite character is little Alice. My favourite part was when Miss Rumphius said she wanted to go to faraway lands. I like the pictures of the beautiful flowers.
If I could give this book another title it would be Going to Faraway Lands.
I learnt about life and places that she goes to.
When I first saw this book I didn’t want to read it because it looked boring. But when I read it I liked it a lot.
I saw it had a Librarian’s Choice gold sticker on it.
I recommend this book to people who want to explore different places.
