From the author of Strictly No Elephants comes a sweet picture book that explores themes of selflessness and empathy when a girl has the chance to make just one wish.
In the grass, a girl finds an extraordinary thing that gives her…just…one…wish.
She asks her those around her what they would wish for in her shoes, but nothing seems quite right. What will her perfect wish be?
In this pitch-perfect picture book, Lisa Mantchev takes the concept of a magic wish and uses it to explore real world empathy, kindness, and good will.
Lisa Mantchev is the author of many picture books, including Strictly No Elephants, which garnered awards and rave reviews and is published in fourteen countries. The New York Times called it “a sunny, smart, tongue-in-cheek tale.” Her latest, Jinx and the Doom Fight Crime!, received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews: “Jinx and the Doom Fight Crime! will captivate readers with their irresistible fun.” Lisa lives on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state with her family.
