Nominated for the 2016 Children’s Book Council’s Picture Book of the Year Award.
This story is about how one young girl’s imagination is awakened and shared with the children around her, suffusing them with hope for a better future. A story about being different, feeling safe, imaginations and the nurturing of hope. Parents and teachers will enjoy sharing the visual smorgasbord created by illustrator Matt Ottley blended with the tantalising words of author Lucy Estela.
I hope everyone has the wonderful opportunity to experience this book. It will be so hard to pick the best out of all these fantastic books on the shortlist for the Children’s Book Councils’ Book Week Picture Book of the Year Award.
