Miki and the Wishing Star by Stephen Mackey


Miki and the Wishing Star by Stephen Mackey

Miki is back in this wintery tale of determination, friendship and hope. It's the three friends' birthday and they all make a special wish, but Penguin's wish leads him into dangerous territory...A magical Antarctic journey in a book. Miki is a highly-successful character in the gift and greeting-card market and a theatre production toured the country to rave reviews last year. A firm favourite with CBeebies, Miki was read on CBeebies Bedtime Hour by David Tennant and Miki and the Moon Blossom by Patrick Stewart.


Stunning... sumptuous... an exquisite tale of friendship and hope. Dublin Sunday Independent Miki is back in this wintry tale of determination, friendship and hope. A magical Antarctic journey in a book. The Schools Advertiser
