This book is just so sweet, we read it over and over, and are absolutely in love with those two adorable girls! I can only recommend it, try it... you will love it!
Sweet, dreamy and fabulously fun, Siba and Saba are two very loveable sisters who dare to dream big.
The story conveys a lovely warming feeling making it the perfect bedtime story.
It also a must read to inspire young readers to believe anything is possible.
My nieces loved this book! Filled with dreamy illustrations the story follows the adventures of two adorable sisters caught between dream and reality. A perfect gift.
Enchanting! My daughter's favourite bedtime story.
