Emma has thousands of freckles, but sometimes she wishes she didn’t. One day grandma tells her a story from long ago, a story of a shimmering island with mist that dances off the ocean, twinkling stars that speak to you from faraway places, and freckles that are more special than Emma could ever have imagined. A magical story of self-acceptance inspired by Gaelic mythology with stunning illustrations that will enchant children with the beauty of nature and the night sky.
