Mardi Orlandoabout this book: 'Adventures of The Wishall' is an illustrated children's book with full color images which are bright and magical.
It's a story about a little boy who is very lonely and after making a wish, a tiny creature appears. His name is Plip and he can fly - he is a Wishall. The little boy makes him a bed in his mother's ring box and they play in the sunshine and go to school together. When the little boy grows up he doesn't need Plip anymore and so Plip decides to go out into the forest to find another friend. He meets Dree the Dragonfly and Lily the Fairy and together they adventure into the world to see if they can find another Wishall.
For children from about 6 and up - younger if you read it to them – this is an adventure story about finding out who you are not what you are and is about finding companionship that is as important as family.
It is exciting whilst not being scary.
I've read it to many school groups and littlies at library storytimes and the children are absolutely fascinated. It seems to strike a chord with all different age groups which is lovely.
