Clara finds a magical umbrella which can make wishes come true, but not any old wish. Winner of the Queen's Knickers Award 2020. Clara has gone to the park, but there's nobody to play with. She finds an umbrella on the ground and does a good deed by putting it on a bench. The umbrella says `thank you' and invites Clara to make a wish. So unfolds a magical chain of events where kindness and forgiveness go hand-in-hand. An amusing way to explore themes of empathy, choice-making and citizenship. Longlisted for the UKLA Award 2021, nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal, and a White Raven.
