We are thrilled to announce that Alexia Wants to Fly has won The Manuela Dias Book Design and Illustration Award Part of the Manitoba Book Awards of 2016 It was also short-listed for the McNally Robinson Books for Young People Awards (younger category)
For as long as she could remember, Alexia wanted to fly!
Why can birds fly with their wings, but I can't fly with mine?
She didn't need her own wings. She didn't need to jump and tumble in the gym. What she needed was an airplane.
