Adventures of The Wishall

A lonely young boy called Billy makes a final wish to the moon to bring him a friend. When a tiny flying creature shows up Billy calls him Plip and promises to love him forever. Over the years they play and learn together until Billy finally grows up and leaves Plip to fend for himself. Although befriended by Dree the dragonfly, Plip wishes he could meet another creature like himself. The journey takes them far from home but this is when Plip discovers that a wish can change everything. This is the story of a Wishall. Join Plip the Wishall, Dree the Dragonfly and Lily the fairy as they search the world for the answers to their questions.


Excerpt

Golden light from the morning sun poured across the meadow of Forquest Fields like warm
liquid. Creatures were starting to stir and scuttle and buzz, breathing in the new day. One
particular creature, living up high above the ground, was a most odd creature for he was a
wishall. This tiny being slept upon the fl uffy yellow pollen buds of the smallest sunfl ower and
was named Plip.
On this morning Plip woke to the bright glossy sun sifting in through the opening petals of
his sunfl ower. Stretching out his arms really wide, he yawned and snuggled into the fl uffy pollen
buds.
As they did every morning, the friendly forest bees that Plip warmly called ‘buzzies’,
circled around the sunset colored petals of his home.
“Wake up!” cried the buzzies, “wake up!”
As the large fl eshy petals stretched open, Plip waved at his friends and then yawned
such a big yawn that he accidentally inhaled some of the pollen. His nose began to twitch and
his mouth silently opened wider and wider until he let out a huge sneeze. The bees buzzed and
giggled as they watched Plip try to hang on to his wobbling bed. They zipped in closer to tickle
him with their gauzy wings. Plip began to laugh so hard he cried out for the buzzies to stop.
“Ooohhh, ahhh,” he cried as they whirled up more pollen and made him sneeze again.



Professional Reviews

Magical - five stars!
This is such a beautiful book for children from about 6 and up - younger if you read it to them. The illustrations are incredible - bright and magical - my daughter was fascinated.

It's a story about a little boy who is very lonely and after making a wish, a little 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 etc. The imagery is really lovely. 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.

The story that follows is delightful. Lots of forest creatures enter the frame and a fairy called Lilly and a dragonfly called Dree join the journey to find another Wishall. It is magical and exciting whilst not being scary.

It's been re-read about 5 times so far! In a word: Delightful.
