It’s almost morning and everyone’s asleep. Everyone except Tessa.
Quiet as a mouse, Tessa takes flight . . . UP . . . UP until she’s flying high above her crib. Her first stop: her sister Maggie’s blue elephant! Then, Maggie’s fire truck . . . and her polka-dot umbrella. But she better be quiet and quick before her daddy hears and stops all her fun!
Follow Tessa on a soaring adventure, one only she and the reader experience, as she flies even higher than she did yesterday, in Tessa Takes Wing, by veteran children’s book editor Richard Jackson with warm, inviting illustrations by Julie Downing.
Praise for Tessa Takes Wing
"Jackson (Have a Look, Says Book) employs minimal text with zephyr-like wit, and digitized watercolors by Downing (No Hugs Till Saturday) make Tessa’s flight both comically balletic and emotionally real. More poem than story, it’s also a wonderful reminder that everyone is capable of a rich fantasy life."—Publishers Weekly
