Rose feels alone in a new town. Everything is different and strange. She wishes, she searches, but she??s not even sure what for. Then, from somewhere far away, someone??"or something??"begins a journey. And maybe, just maybe, Rose and the Wish Thing will find each other.
In an enchanting and poetic narrative with achingly beautiful illustrations, Rose and the Wish Thing celebrates the power of imagination and resilience, even when things seem too hard. It is a story that will stay with readers long after the last page is turned.
