The Most Beautiful Place in the World
 

The Most Beautiful Place in the World (Library Binding, Turtleback School & Library ed.)

By Cameron, Ann
Illustrated by Allen, Thomas B.

Seven-year-old Juan lives in Guatemala, a place of stunning beauty and grim economic reality. Abandoned by his mother, Juan lives with his grandmother and shines shoes. He passionately wants to attend school, but fears Grandmother will say no. Finally gathering his courage, he is... surprised when she not only agrees to send him to school but also chides him about the importance of standing up for himself. Juan tells this bittersweet story, which reads smoothly and powerfully on several levels, with warmth and dignity. -- Booklist.
