About the Book

When ten-year-old June learns she and her mother will be helping her elderly neighbor clean her attic, she thinks it will be a lot of hard work. Soon after she arrives at Mrs. Nichols’ house, June happily discovers there is much more than just “junk” within the walls of the neighbor’s musty attic.

Together with her mother, Janine, who is a local seamstress, June excitedly immerses herself in each memory that Mrs. Nichols unearths from her old dusty attic.

As Mrs. Nichols sorts through the boxes filled with old books and clothing, June uncovers a beautiful antique trunk squirreled away in the far corner of the attic and asks Mrs. Nichols about it. In reply, she tells her that her and Mr. Nichols took it with them when they travelled the world.

Mrs. Nichols invites June to take it home to explore the many wonderful travel souvenirs that they had collected, now neatly tucked away inside the trunk.

It is not long before June, with help from the talking Trunk and souvenirs, embarks on an exciting journey where she learns fun facts about Europe’s various countries, customs, and cultures.
