A True StoryUnknown - 2003
Selected as one of the 10 Outstanding Books of the Year 2004 for the Independent Publisher Book Awards. Winner of the most Inspirational to Youth Book Category Award. Winner of The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval for 2004. Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Multicultural Book of the Year 2004 Finalist. The charming true story set in India is about a boy who found the author's wallet and could not understand why he should be rewarded for returning to the author what was his. The concept of accepting a reward for doing the right thing made no sense to him! The delightful illustrations take children on a picturesque, fun-filled journey through the exotic land. Though the setting is in India, the message is timeless and universal. The book emphasizes values that parents will want to pass on to their children and also provides an excellent opportunity to understand cultural differences and underlying similarities in our diverse world.
