About The Book
Amazing things are happening all around you. You just need to know where to look—and this whimsical picture book is the perfect place to start.
Have you ever wished for something extraordinary? Like the ability to fly? Or to breathe underwater? What if you could talk to animals?
It’s fun to wish for amazing things. But take a look around, and you just might find that the most “ordinary” things…can be extraordinary.

Raves and Reviews
"[S]cenes full of gentle humor and inventive play convey respect and affection for the audience. The slowly dawning message will elicit excitement about spring, wishing, and the ability to decode a narrative."
– Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
"Clanton reveals the charm of recognizing the miraculous in the everyday...Wishes and imagination have power, he suggests, but they pale beside the experiences that await in the real world."
– Publishers Weekly
