A beloved classic—written by a beloved Caldecott winner—is lovelier than ever! Barbara Cooney's story of Alice Rumphius, who longed to travel the world, live in a house by the sea, and do something to make the world more beautiful, has a timeless quality that resonates with each new generation. The countless lupines that bloom along the coast of Maine are the legacy of the real Miss Rumphius, the Lupine Lady, who scattered lupine seeds everywhere she went. Miss Rumphius received the American Book Award in the year of publication. To celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of two-time Caldecott winner Barbara Cooney's best-loved book, the illustrations have been reoriginated, going back to the original art to ensure state-of-the-art reproduction of Cooney's exquisite artwork. The art for Miss Rumphius has a permanent home in the Bowdoin College Museum of Art.

Nach einer Überdosis Schlaftabletten erwacht Lucy benebelt und inmitten eines Berges aus puderzuckerbestäubten Donuts in ihrem Auto, ohne genau zu wissen, wo sie sich befindet. Wo befindet man sich überhaupt im Leben, wenn man mit neununddreißig Jahren schon seit einer Ewigkeit über griechische Dichtung promoviert, partout keine Kinder will, frisch getrennt ist und immer dicker und depressiver wird? Eine Liebe-und-Sex-Therapiegruppe in Venice Beach soll für Lucy Antworten auf diese und andere Fragen liefern, genauso wie ihr neuer Tinder-Account. Doch das unfassbarste High erlebt sie am Strand: Ein wunderschöner Meermann taucht aus dem Ozean auf. Alles zuvor Gewesene wird relativ. Ein ehrlicher, komischer und trauriger Roman, der den ewigen Glauben an die Erlösung durch Liebe und Sexualität radikal hinterfragt.
