The Pink Suitcase
What was his grandmother thinking when she bought Benjamin such a strange present: an empty pink suitcase! To his mother's horror, Benjamin is not only drawn to the suitcase-he absolutely loves it. What's more, as he grows older he shows no signs of wanting to give it up. Spanning the generations, The Pink Suitcase is a warm-hearted and amusing tale about being different and celebrating the individual.
