All the Lost Things

(4) K-3 This feel-good, if sentimental, fantasy follows Olive down a manhole to a trove of "lost things"--from marbles and homework to "youth" and "a sense of humor." She takes some for her family as well as an "enormous scoop of hope" to share with the city. The brief text explores family relationships, emotions, and goodwill. Hand-scrawled font and graffiti-like collage illustrations are softened by watercolors.
