Magerl, Caroline Rose and the Wish Thing, Doubleday Books for Young Readers, 2014. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK Content: G
Rose has moved to a new street in a new town and she feels alone. Everything is different and she is unable to find comfort. Then Rose makes a wish and waits as it makes its long journey to her bringing hope and friendship.
Lovely illustrations are not quite matched by a story that is more strange than magical. A good message is given about change and finding hope in new situations that may seem scary at first.
