From the Back Cover
Everyone deserves at least one wish granted.
Emma was a young girl who wanted to travel and see the world. But one bike ride changed everything. Like Emma, we don’t have control over some things that happen in our lives. But we do have control over our responses.
Emma wanted adventure, but sometimes our biggest adventures are the ones we didn’t choose.
Usually, a story is written and the illustrations follow. But this was not the case with this story. As Anne sat and absorbed the paintings and drawings created by Jessica, Emma came to life.
“This is a mystical experience, it will take you through a visual feast of images, to set the imagination on fire. It is something I will treasure in my collection of inspiring children’s books forever.” -Kath Unsworth
