It happened on a winter's day; (The air was cold, the sky was grey): Out walking in the woods alone, I came upon a wishing bone. What would you do, if your every wish came true? Do you kw how a white rhiceros takes his tea...where to find the elusive purple tiger...and who wanders in the whiffle bog on a bilgy, bulgy night? The Wishing Bone resonates with whimsical questions, inviting the reader to think and dream.
