Nestled inside a lighthouse, Great Rapscott School for the Daughters of Busy Parents takes its motto from Amelia Earhart: Adventure is worthwhile in itself. Headmistress extraordinaire Ms. Rapscott couldn’t agree more. But her students, who arrive via boxes, could use a little convincing. Still, despite their initial reluctance to embrace Ms. Rapscott’s unconventional methods, the students are soon soaring through the sky and getting lost on purpose. In addition to learning what birthday cakes are and how best to approach a bumbershoot tree, the students also manage to learn a little something about courage, strength, and bravery. After all, Ms. Rapscott wouldn’t have it any other way.
A Mary Poppins for the next generation from a bestselling author, with charming illustrations in the vein of Brian Selznick’s The Invention of Hugo Cabret.
