Rabbit has never had a wish before; but one day he gets not just one, but three! Wish is a touching story about the power of kindness and the magic of friendship, with beautiful and emotive illustrations from Chris Saunders.
Once every year wishes take flight, filled with hope and twinkling light. They dance in the air, with a swirl and a swish, you have to be lucky to be chosen by a wish.
Rabbit cannot decide what to wish for, so he asks his friends Mouse, Fox and Bear what they would do if they had a wish. Being selfless and kind, Rabbit grants all three wishes to his friends. They are so grateful for his kindness and generosity, they share their wishes with him.
Reviews all around the world
I was just mildly entertained by this book at the beginning. The rhyming and plot seemed average (good, but average). The only thing that stood out were the illustrations, which are AMAZING! But then Rabbit decides to do something extraordinarily kind and unselfish with his wishes, and he just melted my heart. Some may criticize this story saying that Rabbit has no thoughts of his own, but I think he does. It is not impossible to be at a point in life where all our needs are met and what we most want is joy and fulfillment for others. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. Especially in a world where kids are constantly being told that they need the next new gadget or that brand new toy on the market, it is good to be reminded that giving away can bring just as much joy (if not more) than getting for yourself. What a sweet story about kindness that inspires others to be kind. And as mentioned, those illustrations are beautiful and magical all by themselves. Highly recommended to those who love beautiful artwork, inspirational stories of kindness, and cute animals.
