    A beautifully illustrated story of exploration and imagination. The story captured my grandson’s interest quickly. He loved watching the story unravel before his eyes. Wonderfully told through the universal language of artistry. Well done, Ms. Graf.

    Love, love, love Treasure in the Trunk, a Wordless Picture Book. This book is wonderful! Can’t wait

    to “read” it with my granddaughter when she visits. The illustrations are lovely and get the

    imagination working right away! Highly recommended — Bravo!

    Love, love, love Treasure in the Trunk, A Wordless Picture Book. The delightful story and wonderful

    illustrations get the imagination going really quickly. I can’t wait to “read” it to my five year old

    granddaughter, she’ll love it! Five Stars Plus!!

  4. Sue Bango

    I was fortunate enough to have this picture book read to my first grade class by the author herself. They loved everything about this book and I loved how the beautiful illustrations sparked their imaginations. I highly recommend this book for all ages.

    I’ve always loved wordless picture books, there were a couple of favorites when my children were
    growing up. This would have been an extra special addition to our collection. Now I can share it with my grandchildren.
    It is great to see a brother/sister relationship and their interactions on a rainy potentially boring day! I love the way the author brought out so many different scenes, cultures and activities once the children went outside, you could feel their excitement and awe.
    I found my grandson wanted to hear my interpretations and then had his own, the boy was his favorite character and he noticed the dog in every scene!

    My 3 year old grandson and I enjoy creating new stories each time we read this book. It allows us both to use our imaginations I can also change the story to teach him different lessons. We both enjoy the interaction

    The detailed illustrations in this book allows your imagation to explore and plot out your own adventerous story. It is benefical to use this book in a bilingual setting or in any creative way you desire. I have previously used this very book for educational purposes for children who are educated in Scottish Gaelic and it has helped the children enhance their language skills and interaction. I have no hestitation to recommend this book as it was throughly enjoyed by all age groups.

    I gave this book three out of five stars on Goodreads. It is a nice story, and it has a nice progression. Like all wordless picture books, I do judge the artwork a bit more, since it is the artwork that is telling the story. I do like the simple style of the artwork. I also like how she framed each page. It gives you a more dimensional artwork when pieces of the story go beyond that frame. The only time that the framing changes in the book are towards the end when she uses both pages to share the same frame. It makes me want to have a hard copy of the book just so I can see how the artwork lays within the two pages.

    The only thing that I would want to change in the story is one of the pictures. I do work with little kids, and how a person is drawn is a huge factor. On one of the pages, one of the characters, the girl, is drawn a bit creepily. I understand that it was just the angle of the picture, but my first response was how creepy that girl looked. Other than that, I have no complaints.

    Right now I am in a kindergarten classroom as a classroom aid, and I would have loved to use this story in the classroom. Our unit this month is about the weather and how we express the weather in our daily lives as well as in art. This book illustrates very well everything that our teacher talked about in today’s lesson. Sadly, due to Covid-19, I am not able to share this book with any of my friends. I would have loved to not only see their responses but to share with your their words of wisdom about the story.

    In all, I do think that this book would be fun to read with small children. I believe that everyone will enjoy the artwork, as well as the story being told. I also know from other wordless picture books, young ones will love being able to tell you the story that is happening within the pages.
