This update might not even be from the same story, but it was there in my
brain so I figured it was worth a shot. I think maybe in the beginning the
protagonist was standing in her room, and it was really messy, and
something came in through the window.
The girl had short blonde hair, I think. She may have been wearing a red
shirt. I think her name was Sue, maybe? I could be remembering that all
I read it when I was five or six, so 2003-2004. I remember I loved the
colors and artwork of everything, especially; it was all very vivid and
I don't remember much of the actual story other than in the last few pages,
she found her baby brother in a cave at dawn; there was a little light
coming through the ceiling, and she was in a boat. There was a lot of
water. The baby might have been in a cage? Maybe it had something to do
with a witch?
What I remember most is that page when she found him; it had sort of a
bird's eye view of her in the boat going across the cave, and there was
light coming from somewhere above her.
It's not Labyrinth. I can't stress that enough. Totally different story.
This has been bothering me for years now; any help would be appreciated.:)
Anyone know of a way to put pictures on here? Because I could draw the page

Well, this one doesn't fit with many of your details but it might be
worth taking a look at just to rule it out. "Outside Over There" by
Maurice Sendak is a picture book about a girl, Ida, whose baby sister is
stolen by goblins. She has to go on a journey to the goblin world to
find her. She has a horn that she plays music on that is a prominent
part of the story. There is a little boat, and water when she finds the
baby. She has long brown hair, though, and I don't think she wears red.
Maybe you could google the illustrations and see if there is any
similarity to what you remember.
It wasn't that. The plot was very similar, though, from what I remember.
Thank you for trying:D
