Staff Reviews


On a snowy day, Charles and his toboggan set out to find a wish tree. Their quest is more about the journey than the outcome as they help friends along the way and enjoy the beautiful forest. But as night falls, it looks uncertain as to if they'll ever find what they seek. The lovely text of this luminous book begs to be read aloud over and over again; there's a small bit of magic on every page.

Description


Charles wants to find a wish tree. His brother and sister don't believe there is such a thing, but his trusty companion Boggan is ready to join Charles on a journey to find out. And along the way, they discover that wishes can come true in the most unexpected ways.
