Meet Mrs. Moffat and Mr. George Peterson, elderly neighbors who enjoy each other's company. Mrs. Moffat is the local art teacher and on the first day of spring purchases a red coat with six brass buttons. Later on in spring when it is really too warm to be wearing a coat, she does so anyway but has to take it off on her walk home. Stopping to speak with Mr. Peterson she doesn't realize that one of the buttons gets caught in a raspberry bush and falls off. The coat gets put away for the summer.

The story continues with the adventures of the brass button. Rain comes and washes it out of the garden into the street where a little girl picks it up. From there it heads elsewhere until it finds its way back onto Mr. Peterson's path right when Mrs. Moffatt has discovered it missing and is very distressed. How did it get back there? You'll have to read the book to find out!

There is WAY more in this sweet, gentle, delightful story. FABULOUS!

Crescent Dragonwagon weaves a charming tale of the journey one brass button takes in a years time. She also gives the reader insight into a charming neighborhood with eccentric characters and a sweet romance between two of its elderly neighbors. The illustrations alone could hold a child's interest, but I think the story is most apporpriate for primary grade children.

One of my favorite books! 12 Jan. 2013
By E. Cunningham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The story is sweet and I love, love, love the illustrations! I loved this book when I first read it 15 years ago or so and I still treasure it. My daughter and I have recently bought three copies to give as gifts, although all were for adults. It's probably not the best book for young children (I'm a children's librarian, and I can't really imagine the little ones at story time enjoying this--it's a bit complex and mature for them), but it's a beautiful children's book for older children and adults. It would make a lovely gift for an elderly couple beginning a romance or getting married!
One of our favorites! 3 Aug. 2008
By Janelle M. Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My 6 year old loves this book and has for almost 2 years. The story is charming, well written and I love the out of the ordinary subject of a couple discovering companionship and love in the later years of life. The illustrations are wonderful and I don't mind reading it over and over (and over and over!).
