The wish factory ISBN: 9780744560787
Published by Walker
Oliver has bad dreams about a monster. Then one night a fluffy cloud comes along to take him to the wish factory. This is a wonderfully dotty place, full of Riddell's gnome-like creatures, and while there, Oliver makes a wish. The wish is made up 'good and strong', wrapped 'to keep it fresh', and given to Oliver to take home. The wish, of course, turns the black monster in the dream into a fat white creature that sucks its thumb. Highly reassuring and full of humour and wit, this beautifully illustrated story will provide an excellent way of coping with a common problem.
