AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From two of our most talented picture-book creators comes this celebration of things that can't be destroyed by bombs or fire. A haunting and beautiful tale of the power of words, the importance of stories and the resilience of the human spirit.

'When the enemy bombed the library, everything burned.

'As war rages, Peter and his father flee their home, taking with them a treasure box that holds something more precious than jewels. They journey through mud and rain and long cold nights, and soon their survival becomes more important than any possessions they carry.

'But as the years go by, Peter never forgets the treasure box, and one day he returns to find it...' (From the publisher's website.)
