Abstract:

Summary: The author recreates his father's visit to Tibet and the wondrous things that he found there. While my father was in China and Tibet, he kept a diary, which was later locked in a red box. We weren't allowed to touch the box. The stories I heard as a little boy faded to a hazy dream, and my drawings from that time make no sense. I cannot decipher them. It was not until I myself had gone far, far away and received the message from my father that I became interested in the red box again.

Notes:

Ages 10-up; book level 5.3; mystery and suspense
