Emma and Ginger: Dad's For Sale (book 2)
🎁Recommended for ages 3 and above
Illustrated by Jeanette Yap
Emma’s back, and feistier than ever. This time, she wants to put her dad up for sale!
It all begins when she accompanies him to his camera shop. There, she encounters a rich and famous actress willing to pay a whole lot to hire a bodyguard. Since Emma’s dad refuses to buy her the pair of rollerblades she wants, she decides to “sell” him to the famous actress to get the money she needs.
That seems like a splendid idea, until she gradually realises that she appreciates and needs her dad…more than she wants new toys.
