The message is so profound and the illustrations so captivating that our departure ended up delayed because I had to read it a second time before we left!

The theme of the book is one we have all dealt with in our lives - and the discovery that one can conquer their fears and enjoy the results is liberating and totally true.
I loved the bright and original illustrations.
Every home should embrace this story - I will re-read it - again & again.
