From the Publisher:

"You will reach the far-off land if you keep hope alive within you." The words of Magic Frog give courage to the young mouse on his long and perilous journey to reach the wonderful land of legend. He faces many obstacles on his quest and sacrifices much to help others in need. But the mouse's compassion and faith in himself prove to be a source of great power...and bring him rewards even beyond his dreams.

A young girl tells her friend about the traveling store her grandfather used to visit when he was a child. At the time her grandfather grew up, few people had cars, so the store would come to them--a pickup truck filled with wonderful things to buy. Inspired by the past, the girls decide to set up their own traveling store. Illustrated with watercolor paintings and colored pencil drawings.
Author Bio
John Steptoe
Steptoe's first book, STEVIE, was published when he was 19 years old; it brought him fame as one of the first authors to depict the language of African-American children. In addition to illustrating his own works, Steptoe also provided illustrations for such authors as Arnold Adoff, Lucille Clifton, and Eloise Greenfield. In 1982 he won the Coretta Scott King award for his illustrations for MOTHER CROCODILE. His 1987 illustrations for MUFARO'S BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS: AN AFRICAN TALE earned that book a Caldecott Honor.
