All the Magic in the World

The children who play in the street laugh at the odd-job man Joseph for picking up string and other junk, until he shows them that magic can be found in even the simplest of things.

Where does magic come from? Joseph, the odd-job man who collects found objects in a tin shows little Lena where to find magic. Together, they make a necklace from soda-can pop-tops and pictures from a piece of string.

Young readers will recognize the value of their imaginations in finding beauty and magic in the ordinary.
