Baker & Taylor
Molly's fairy godmother gives her a magic fishbone that will grant one wish, which the resourceful girl saves until she really needs it.

McMillan Palgrave
A delightful picture book loosely based upon the Charles Dickens story The Magic Fishbone.

When Molly's fairy godmother tells her that she will find a magic fishbone that will grant her but one wish, all her brothers and sisters want to know what Molly will wish for. There are many things Molly would like, and so many ways in which a wish would come in handy, but she decides to wait until she knows exactly what she wants.

Enchanting, old-fashioned illustrations depict a wondrous nineteenth-century London alive with elegantly clad cats, pigs, goats, birds, and other two- and four-legged creatures in Barbara McClintock's delightful reminder that patience and practicality are rewarded.
