The Lost Package
A Lot Can Happen Between the Post Office and the Destination
Richard Ho; illustrated by Jessica Lanan
Roaring Brook Press
From author Richard Ho and illustrator Jessica Lanan, the heartwarming story of a package that gets lost, then found, and an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at what happens at the post office.
Like other packages, this one began as an empty box. It was packed with great care, sealed tight, and given a personal touch.
Like other packages, it left the post office with hope. But unlike most packages, before it got to its destination...
Follow one package that loses its way and discover a friendship tale that proves distance can't always keep us apart.
