Tibet Through the Red Box (Caldecott Honor Book) - Peter Sís Tried reading this with my daughter (9) who couldn't get into it. Finished it on my own; a better target may be young teens. In the book, the author tells a story of his father's diary, recorded while lost in Tibet. These events are connected to stories told to the author while sick in bed, and both events and stories have a dreamlike quality. Color is used to separate the stories and the illustrations as well, and the final pictures have many glorious colors.
