The little girl in this story lives in a trailer near a forest where her father is building a dam. Everything in her world is familiar and precious to her. But the dam is nearly finished and the family is moving to the city, which the little girl knows only as a place marked by a big red star on the map at school. Have the city people seen what I have seen, she wonders? The teacher suggests that she draw something that she wants to remember to take away with her when she leaves, and the little girl decides to draw what she knows -- her road and everything her world contains -- so that she can keep it with her always.

The girl in the story tells about attending a one-room school in northern Saskatchewan, where she is the only child in Grade 3. The news that her family will be moving to Toronto comes as a shock, and she is determined to record all the things she loves about the only place she has known so far. Matt James' whimsical, surrealist paintings are a perfect match for a little girl's boundless energy.
