Synopsis

I Wish by Joyce Dunbar

What if there was one wish left. Tell me what you'd wish for. Cubby is a squirrel who wishes...he wishes his big sister Clementine would come out and play, he wishes he could swing on the high branch, make a den and dig a deep hole. And with Clementine's help, most of his wishes come true. At last it is Clementine's turn to make a wish, but as Mum explains, 'Wishes don't always come true straight away, sometimes we have to wait.' And sure enough, while the two little squirrels are sleeping something magical happens...A delightful tale with exquisite illustrations by Ivan Bates.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
