Through it she escapes into a world where wonder, adventure and danger abound. Red marker pen in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon and a flying carpet which carry her on a spectacular journey ... who knows where? When she is captured by a sinister emperor, only an act of tremendous courage and kindness can set her free. Can it also guide her home and to happiness? In this exquisitely illustrated book, an ordinary child is launched on an extraordinary, magical journey towards her greatest and most rewarding adventure of all...

Aaron Becker began drawing picture books at the age of eight. After many years of practice, he published his first wordless picture book, Journey, which was named a Caldecott Honor Book. He is now on a quest to share his books with as many young readers as possible. "There is nothing more gratifying than seeing kids hold one of my books close to their heart," he says. "My hope is that these stories might inspire us all to place a bit more faith in the power of wonder." Aaron Becker lives in the USA in Massachusetts, with his wife and daughter.
