Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Spring 2011 Kids' Next List
“Here's another book full of whimsy and wonder from Caldecott-honoree Lehman. In this wordless tale, a hidden candy box of 'treasures' passes the decades undetected until found by three boys, who decide to follow the map hidden inside, with magical results. A great treat for kids of all ages, who will delight in using their own words to tell the story to go along with the illustrations.”
-- Kelley Drahushuk, The Spotty Dog, Hudson, NY

Times change.
Cities may grow large.
Summers may come and go.
And people "might "grow old,
but the one thing that always
remains the same is the desire for
adventure. Barbara Lehman takes readers on a timeless trip to a world of secret messages left in secret boxes hidden in secret places.
You'll never know what you'll find when you look inside.

About the Author
Barbara Lehman has illustrated many books for children. Born in Chicago, Barbara attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, where she earned a BFA in communication design. A full-time illustrator, Barbara says, Books and art have always held the strongest attraction for me. I have always felt drawn to commercial art because of its ability to reach many people. I like the idea of being part of the media in a meaningful and thoughtful way, especially with children as the audience. She now lives in Philmont, New York.
