Review: Lily's Wish

Lily is writing her Christmas list for Santa, but this year she has only one wish. She wants wings so that she can fly like a bird.

Santa writes back offering fairy wings, but Lily is emphatic. She needs to be able to fly.

Will Santa be able to grant her Christmas wish?

Lily’s Wish is a lovely reminder that the best gifts don’t always come wrapped underneath the Christmas tree. Lily’s wish isn’t really about flying, but rather about wanting to see someone special for Christmas.

With lovely illustrations by Serena Geddes (my favourites are the snow-mountains and the London scene), this sweet story brings a magical touch to asking Santa for something special for Christmas.
