A poignant picture book that celebrates the bond between father and daughter and follows their long distance trip around the world.

When you keep your eyes and heart wide open, new friends await you wherever you go.

Most parents drive a car or ride a bus or train to work—but not Lulu’s papa. He navigates mountains, deserts, and oceans, each time returning home with pockets full of treasures. There’s an ancient calculator from China, a musical mbira from Zimbabwe, and special games from Sumatra. But the best treasures are special stories Papa tells when he comes home—tales of playing peek a boo with rare birds in the Andes and riding dragons in the Irish Sea.

This long-distance love story between parent and child celebrates inclusivity, imagination, and the richness of global cultures. For fans of The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson and Drawn Together.
