Ivy and the Wicker Suitcase

Ivy and the Wicker Suitcase is a book and accompanying musical audio drama, about a young girl who descends into the underworld.

Austin, Texas, 1938. The first day of summer vacation. Hidden away down in her favorite creek, 10 year-old Ivy Wire sits with her battered guitar singing and playing to the birds and trees. Suddenly, the sky darkens and Ivy nervously follows a mockingbird into a nearby cave. She hears a monstrous roar and sees a tumbling wall of muddy water rushing toward her. “FLASH FLOOD!!!” She barely escapes by scampering into a hole, but she immediately starts plunging into darkness. Thus begins her descent into the Underworld.
