See what reviewers are saying about The Wish:


"It is refreshing to read a picture book about a strong relationship between a father and daughter. About the simplicity of really loving someone more than yourself....A beautiful story." - Mrs. Null from Read Aloud Literacy

"The Wish is a tender tale that will tug at your heartstrings...The carefully rendered black and white illustrations pair nicely with the gentleness of the story and I like how they beg to be colored in by the reader’s imagination. Any parent who has watched his/her child grow up and move away will most certainly relate to this story, but so will anyone who has a special connection with another person...The Wish is a sweet, sincere story ready to be shared with the special people in your life, children or adults." - Frog on a Blog
