A book in which the pictures are as important as the text in the telling of the story. It begins, intriguingly, with pictures only telling of a little Roman girl who loses her sandal in a river... it has gone forever. Or has it? The book moves to the words of a modern girl's big brother. They visit a museum and there, in a glass case, is a sandal just like his sister's. Where did it come from? And what will happen to little sister's sandal when she drops it in the river on the way home? We move to 2250 AD... and beyond. Fascinating and thought-provoking. I recommend this highly to teachers interested in giving 6, 7 and 8 year-olds a sense of history... as well as a real literary experience.
