Interest Age 5-8 A generous helping of fairy dust fuels this delightful adventure with wonderful illustrations by the author. Cobweb is a very new fairy and she makes a complete mess up of her very first job! Tasked with delivering three wishes to the woodcutter she does fine with the first two but manages to lose the third! Now there is some powerful magic running riot.

The First, Third Wish by Ian Beck
A charming fairytale. When a newly - qualified fairy loses the third wish of three she must deliver to a woodcutter, young Dickon finds it. There is no limit to the number of times a lost wish may be used, and soon there are sparkly cats and magic lemonade bottles all over the place! Can fairy Cobweb find the wish and put a stop to Dickon's magic? A joyous and whimsical read by a much - loved author and illustrator.

For 5–8s, these quality stories promote good reading practice for all newly independent readers.
Here is a review written by Hannah Minton, age 7.
The first third wish is a book for new readers. The book was a great and exciting adventure of a fairy called Cobweb's first school mission. With fairy dust everywhere and Dickon making loads of wishes will Cobweb put thing right without upsetting anything else. I recommend the book because of its amazing adventurous plot. I loved how the different worlds combined.
