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.
