The Tiny Wish by Lori Evert -- OPTIONAL
A curious girl named Anja wishes to be small so she can see the mountain springtime in a whole new way. When a bird grants her wish, she has a great time exploring her new world, but how will she get back to her regular size again?
Some readers may find this one enchanting, although too many of the photos came across as contrived or clumsy. While the story was serviceable, it was quite long and the "Was it real or just a dream?" ending feels like a very overdone copout.
