An enlightening story about courage and making a difference … A beautiful and profound picture book told with simplicity and style


Equal parts laugh-out-loud funny and profound, a bold tale of daring and bravery, with a little existentialism thrown in .. . a wonderfully inspirational and quirky picture book that will strike a chord with readers of all ages, especially those who might be small but happen to dream big.
