When a girl is given a coin to spend at the market, she thinks carefully about what to buy. She is tempted by the towering stacks of fruit, spinning rides and glass jars filled with sweets.
But it isn’t until a stranger gives something to her, without expecting anything in return, that she knows exactly what to do with her coin.
A story brimming with joy, generosity and magic from two of Australia’s beloved picture book creators. Carrie Gallasch’s beautiful text evokes the warmth and community of the market, while Hannah Sommerville brings this glorious world to life with rich colour and texture.
A beautiful hardcover book.
