Inspired by three of the most loved books by Stephen Michael King, Emily Loves to Bounce creates a whimsical world full of balls and boxes, where amazing ideas express themselves in extraordinary ways.


 

Follow carefree Henry and practical Amy as they turn the world upside down and right way round, and learn that working together in spite of their differences brings out the best in everyone.
