DescriptionFive wishes can save a suffering kingdom--but at a high price to 12-year-old Morwenna, who is responsible for granting them. A sensitively written tale which poses philosophical questions about selfishness, selflessness, and the terrible burden of what first appears to be wonderful gifts.--School Library Journal.
