I Wish... by Nick Ward


I Wish... by Nick Ward

A beautifully told original tale about a boy and his teddy bear who embark on an amazing journey of the imagination that takes them flying through the night's starry sky and splashing into the sea. There they are lifted onto a whale's back and continue their journey, gliding past 'galleons laden with gold', flanked by shoals of tiny bright fishes. Their journey continues through the night as they fly over the silent rooftops, and finishes safely back in bed.


Charming . . . A great choice for sharing one-on-one or for storytime. -- School Library Journal on Come On, Baby Duck!

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
