What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Amazing things are happening all around you. You just need to know where to look—and this whimsical picture book is the perfect place to start.

Have you ever wished for something extraordinary? Like the ability to fly? Or to breathe underwater? What if you could talk to animals?

It’s fun to wish for amazing things. But take a look around, and you just might find that the most “ordinary” things…can be extraordinary.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
5.25 / 7.0

This little boy has a great imagination and wishes for a lot of fun things (my favorite being rain in seven different colors and flavors!), but at the end of the day, he wants something real and extraordinary. He finds it in the song of birds in a nest, showing that even ordinary, everyday things are remarkable.
