The book features brilliant color illustrations along with simple and poignant text. The book points out that dreams can be realized with commitment and determination. The book was published by Sky Pony Press, an imprint of Skyhorse Publishing in New York City, and represented by Anna Olswanger of Liza Dawson Associates.
