By:  Eve Bunting

Maeve is unnerved when she and her grandfather find a body in the bog in Ballywhinney,Ireland. It turns out to be the body of a young girl who lived more than athousand years ago. A girl like Maeve, with fair hair, who walked the same fields andpicked the same flowers. When archeologists display the mummy at a museum, Maevewonders: Does the girl mind being displayed in a glass case for all to see? Or does shemiss the green meadow where she had lain for so many hundreds of years?Two picture-book masters sensitively capture the layers of thought and feeling arisingin the face of an awe-inspiring and mysterious discovery.

    "There is drama from the first page of this moving picture book."--Booklist

    "The tender, gently elegiac rone renders this far more than a picture of how such finds happen."--Horn Book

    "An evocative story in verse."--School Library Journal

    "Maeve's voice and the natural flow of dialogue make this a pleasure to read aloud, and McCully's watercolor scenes capture a placid landscape and cozy home suddenly jolted from the quotidian into the extraordinary."--Bulletin, starred review
