Does your daughter love fairy tales?
Is your daughter full of imagination and wonder?
Then Lady Emma is just the story for her. Based on ALICE IN WONDERLAND and THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, Harrison brings you an imaginative story for young girls to enjoy.

You can follow along in the whole series of adventures with Lady Emma beginning with this book. Lady Emma is full of imagination but also gets herself into blunders. As she grows she finds her own personal strength and determination to get out of mishaps. We meet her as a young child and follow her all the way through to a young woman who finds her prince.

My photos do not do the illustrations justice. The pages are vibrant and full of detail.
Every character just jumps off the page. 
Your child will want to look at the pictures as much as hear the story.
Lady Emma learns to be independent and she learns she can do anything she dreams. This book shares excellent qualities to reinforce with your children. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the series has to offer. It is really a delightful book.
