"Beautiful! I loved reading Emma's Wish and was mesmerized by the illustrations. This is a wonder-filled book that will give you reason to hope again." --Jeff Goins, Author and Dad
From the Back Cover
Everyone deserves at least one wish granted.
Emma was a young girl who wanted to travel and see the world. But one bike ride changed everything. Like Emma, we don't have control over some things that happen in our lives. But we do have control over our responses.
Emma wanted adventure, but sometimes our biggest adventures are the ones we didn't choose.
Usually a story is written and the illustrations follow. But this was not the case with this story. As Anne sat and absorbed the paintings and drawings created by Jessica, Emma came to life.
"This is a mystical experience, it will take you through a visual feast of images, to set the imagination on fire. It is something I will treasure in my collection of inspiring children's books forever." -Kath Unsworth

Mother and daughter, author and illustrator, combine their talents to share Emma’s story of innocence, misfortune, acquiescence, and hope and call attention to a quite mature awareness which can benefit everyone: We are more than our physical form and if we see adversities with the eyes of the soul and find joy in the magic and beauty of life despite our handicaps, then miracles will happen.
If you have gone through darkness or any other suffering and made it, you'll see yourself in this story. I did not lose my eyesight but I lost my legs for over two months. I see my pain and disability in this story. But this tale also reminds me of my own approach in choosing to live life as it comes and accepting both the beautiful and the ugly, instead of falling prey to life’s whims.
If you haven't encountered any obstacles yet, you will be encouraged to trust that you too will come out a winner.
I admire Anne both as a person and a writer with a soothing and inspiring voice, equally effective in treating both agonizing and tender themes of life with aptitude, gentleness, and wisdom.
A beautiful pairing of art to story. And the facial expressions are amazing. The illustrations feel so hopeful, which captures the essence of the story perfectly.
A heart-touching telling about wishes that come true.
The illustrations are as beautiful as the words are as beautiful as the illustrations. In other words, they complement each other perfectly.
Note: I received a preview copy of this book from the authors. I only have the Kindle version, but I will be purchasing the paperback version when it is released. It will be a great addition to my collection.
The writing is easy to understand and the plot is simple to follow. This is a must read for all young children. It wouldn't hurt for adults to read it as well.
art vividly captured that.
