Miss Rumphius




Alice Rumphius wanted to travel the world when she grew up, and then to live by the sea-just as her grandfather had done. But there is one more thing, he tells her:she must do something to make the world more beautiful. Young Alice does not yet know what that will be: Until she discovers that the Lupine flower, helps to make the world a better place because it looks so beautiful.
