Publisher: Walker Books

A lonely little girl can't distract her hardworking dad, so she takes her amazing red pen and draws herself into an adventure. When her father finally realises she is missing, he steps her through her red painted door into a magical world. He rides on a dragon boat to a golden palace, where his daughter has befriended the king and his son. She doesn't want to leave her new friends - but when enemies kidnap the king, only the girl, her father and the red pen can save them…

This imaginative, fantastical escapade - the last in Aaron Becker's Caldecot-Honor-winning wordless trilogy - overflows with creativity. A spellbinding story where the stunning, shimmering pictures paint at least a thousand words.
