Hollie Hughes

illustrated by Sarah Massini

This evocative, beautifully illustrated picture book celebrates one girl's limitless imagination, perfect for fans of the Fan Brothers.

Anything is possible and nothing's as it seems . . .

In a town by the seaside, Marianne is often seen digging for buried treasure on the beach. One day, she finds the most wonderful treasure of all - a dinosaur skeleton!

That night, Marianne makes a wish upon a star that her dinosaur will come to life. She wishes it with all her heart - and it comes true. Together, Marianne's adventures with her new friend are limited only by their imagination.

This enchanting picture book will take you on a magical journey far beyond the page.

Hollie Hughes finds much of her work taking place in schools - both as a visiting author, and as a literacy consultant. Previously a youth worker and higher education lecturer, she also runs writing workshops for children and adults. She lives in the United Kingdom with her family.
