A girl in India discovers an ancient step well in this companion book to the creators' much-loved Out of the Way Out of the Way

When a girl discovers a slab of stone on a weedy patch of land, she calls to her friends, "Look Look " The children clear away the weeds and garbage and find more stones. They call their families to come and see and begin to dig around the stones. Word travels to villages nearby, and more and more people join in, until the digging reveals steps that lead down to an ancient well. At the bottom, there's even a little water When the rains come, they cause an underground spring to flow once again, filling the ancient well with fresh, clean water and greening the surrounding fields.

Lyrical writing and lively, richly colored art come together once again in this compelling story that embraces community, nature and the passage of time. Includes an author's note about ancient step wells and their potential to help handle floods and provide water.
