really liked it
bookshelves: childrens, fiction, picture-books, reviewed

The illustrations are lovely, just gorgeous. I especially like the second to last one when Emma goes outside and becomes part of the foliage.

This is a wonderful story, with a somewhat too abrupt ending I thought, but it works okay enough. Emma is a gifted artist from a young age, and it’s interesting to see how she attributes her talent and abilities and how she discovers the truth.

This is a great book for any child as they can see another child discover what’s within her.

I see that this illustrator/author has done much other work and I’m very eager to check out his other books.
