Lorelei’s parents and her brother are missing after a giant storm when Narolev’s Comet was in the sky. Now (a year later exactly) she is searching for a giant piece of the comet that her father had. She was in her kitchen looking and she wrote a word in the air. Then unexpectedly a griffin appeared in the kitchen. It looked startled but then said, “Doolivanti you have summoned me but my world and my friends are in danger and I need to help”. Little did she know that this was the first step to a new adventure in the Wishing World.
The Wishing World is a fun and exciting book full of adventure and only someone with a big imagination could have written this story. I think that this is a great book for someone who loves fantasy and adventure.
