The Wishing Cupboard

Tan is waiting impatiently for his Mum to come home from Vietnam bringing his cousin Lan. His grandma decides to show him the wonders of the wishing cupboard. In every drawer there is an object which has its own story. Attached to the object is a wish. Tan finds the last space is empty and his grandma invites him to place his own object and make his own wish. Whilst grandma’s snoozes Tan makes two wishes one for himself about his mother and one for his grandmother too. Both come true! Libby Stanley’s handsome and detailed artwork makes this book a treasure.
