When Wishes Come True
Per-henrik Gürth

Lobster Press

In Per-Henrik Gürth’s When Wishes Come True, Little Bear looks out at the Arctic tundra dancing with colours, and frowns. Mother Bear pries the problem out of him: he doesn’t understand why his most fervent wishes never come true. Mother Bear helps him to recognize the little joys of their daily life together – gazing at the northern lights, playing with the belugas, sliding down snowy hills. Gürth’s story emphasizes family bonds and the power of hope, through soft and playful images. (Ages 3-7) mRb
