CHESH Review # 54 The Treasure Box by Margaret Wild and illustrated by Freya Blackwood

Book: 54 The Treasure Box by Margaret Wild and Freya Blackwood

The resilience of the human spirit lives large in this book.  World War II sent so many fleeing for their lives across Europe.  This book illuminates one such story and ties it all together with the symbol of a book.  A lovely circular story, brimming with heart and sadness but mostly resilience.  Not sure if I would be able to read it more than a couple times, but it is beautiful and a story that needs reading and remembering.
