Make a wish and the sky's the limit in this delightful rhyming story from the incomparable Jean Little.

If wishes were ice cream, our cones would be doubles.
If wishes were soapsuds, we'd blow shining bubbles.

In this charming new picture book, children and their wild imaginations take centre stage! In a true celebration of wishers and dreamers, Jean Little entertains readers with bouncy rhymes depicting kids' favourite wishes - from puppies to pancakes; and sundaes to snowflakes.

Governor General's award-winning Canadian illustrator Geneviève Côté infuses each page with her inventive illustrations, literally turning each spread into a carnival of fun!

If wishes were stories, there would only be one - this one!
