What will Elisa-Kay do as she faces people who say “No!” to her idea?

Will her enthusiasm be enough to make someone believe in her?

Will you root for her?

Follow along and find out! But don’t be surprised  if something happens you never even imagined!

I can’t wait for more! With so many children’s books out today,  please feel good that, as I believe, this book will become a favorite with your kids, grandkids, and on to next generations!”  —  Ken Goldblatt, father and grandpa

“A delightful read that subtly helps kids explore a plethora of feelings and also encourages creativity and determination! Just be sure to have a few select ingredients on hand; kids will surely want to try marshmallow toast after reading this one-of-a-kind story!!” – L.B., mom and teacher



Elisa-Kay’s favorite place in the whole wide world is her family’s summer cottage. It’s on a lake so clear you can see the bottom, and it’s a wonderful, fun place where she and her cousins have many exciting adventures.

Will an ordinary summer day spent with Nana turn out to be an extra-special day when Elisa-Kay tries to fly so high?
