This is such an imgainative and creative story about two children that play in the same field everyday and then one day decide to make a wish on a dandelion together. Their wish takes them on a fun filled adventrue and has a fantastic ending. I would use this as a creative writing assignment in my classroom, and have the students write what thier wish would be and what would happen if it came true.

this enchanting story is about two children who make a wish on a dandelion and it comes true. A glorious carnival comes to town with pirates and mermaids. The illustrations in this book are just magical and the story is sweet and wonderful. I'm going to try this for a storytime on wishes this week and see how it goes.
