What a sweet, lively story that encourages using your imagination, creative play, and going on an adventure right in your room! I love it!
This gorgeous picture book from a debut author-illustrator celebrates the imagination and all adventurous children.
The sun has almost set, but Olive, Barney and Ella are wide awake and ready for adventure! Ella wants to go to the jungle, Barney hankers to be a pirate, but Ella has a secret wish . . . to see a dragon!
So off they clamber into a hot-air balloon and are whisked away to magical lands. They see pirate teddybears and unicorns and tigers, but will they ever see a dragon?
