Are you ready to go on a journey with this book? You don't need a suitcase or a passport. You'll just need your imagination.
Now trace over the picture on the right-hand side of the page,
The red door that she's drawn has appeared by magic! She has turned the handle and pushed it open gently. Now she is walking through!
Behind her is the open red door.
She's stepping into an adventure!
She has to draw fast as she tumbles downwards, but she knows just what to do. She draws a line. It goes round"¦ Whatever could she be drawing? Hurry up, little girl!
Now we can see what the little girl has drawn in the sky with her magic crayon. A beautiful red hot air balloon is floating above the clouds. A red basket gently swings beneath it and, inside the basket, is the little girl.
Light shines in as the door swings open, and the purple bird doesn't hesitate. It swoops through the doorway.
The little girl crouches low and follows, on her hands and knees.
