Em is lost in a dark, empty world. He has no memory of where he has come from or where he is going. He does know that he is searching for something, but what this lost secret is he doesn’t know. On he wanders, over dark hills and through black forests, until one day, he sees a glowing light up ahead. Em doesn’t know it yet, but that light is only just the beginning of his dark and miraculous journey. Em’s hunt begins with just his legs, but when he finds his heart is entangled, Em makes a silent promise to himself that no matter what dangers stand in front of him, he will find the secret, he will discover what he’s searching for at last, even if he wanders til he’s nothing more than a shadow slipping in and out of the darkness, the last lonely soul alive in that empty night-world. Do you know children who enjoy picture books? Even if the only child is the one inside you, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to be inspired by this fresh, imaginative story about hope, perseverance, and the yearning we all feel, like Em, to find that place or people, that elusive plane of peace where we are truly understood and accepted.
