Emma. Emma Twigg’s Incredible Journey to Olympic Gold
loved this book as soon as I saw it! The cover illustrations are beautiful! Once I started to read it did not disappoint. Emma’s story is beautifully written, and the reader is really pulled into how hard Emma worked to achieve her dream, and that hard work and determination can definitely pay off.
The facts are really well set out, but the book reads like a story with the readers cheering for Emma all the way through. The illustrations are stunning, with a great amount of attention to detail within that really compliments the story and places a picture in the reader's mind.
This is a wonderful biography of Emma’s journey and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this!
