Miss Rumphius - By Barbara Cooney

Great-Aunt Alice promised her grandfather, when she was a little girl, that she would do three things before she died.  The most difficult task: "To make the world more beautiful".  A sweet story of a life well-lived.  The illustrations are a beautiful combination of acrylics and Prismacolor pencils.  An American Book Award winner.
