Emma's Journey is about a little sparrow named Emma who lives in New York City's Central Park. After her best friend Duckyduck departs on his first migration, Emma begins to spend time with her Uncle Bob, who entertains her with stories about his French ancestors. As Emma looks at his postcards of Paris, she begins to dream of seeing Paris for herself. Once winter arrives, she makes a very big decision. This fifty-six page book includes more than forty color photographic spreads of New York City, overlaid with Claire Frossard's magical illustrations of Emma's life. An inventive and poetic portrait of New York City, the images cover Central Park, Midtown, the Flatiron building, the Lower East Side, and the Brooklyn Bridge. And naturally we see a little of Paris as well! Born in Versailles, France, Claire Frossard left for the School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg in 1997. Since graduation, she has worked as an illustrator, creating children's books and drawings for the press. In 1998 she made her first trip to New York to visit her uncle Etienne. Over the next ten years, Claire dreamed of returning. Then, in 2009, she arrived back in New York with the beginnings of Emma's Journey in her suitcase and the address of Enchanted Lion Books in her pocket. Emma's Journey, melding Claire's words and illustrations with Etienne's photographs, is the fruit of their shared passion for New York. Etienne Frossard is a freelance photographer who lives in Brooklyn. He was born in 1956 and grew up in France. His pictures have appeared in Newsweek, Time Out New York, Metropolis, and New York Living. His Brooklyn Bridge images have received many awards.
