Based on an ancient Greek and Indian tale, 'The Three Wishes', which later evolved in to a 12th century British version. A grateful elf grants 3 wishes to a poor woodcutter who accidentally wishes for sausages, whose angry partner then wishes those sausages were stuck to the end of John's nose, who then later wishes they would fall off his nose again... which reminds them both how happy they are to simply have each other, now also warmed by an excellent sausage dinner. A fun story and a chatty text, all enhanced by Souhami's trademark, layered-up, paper cut-out illustrations. Age 4-7, Paperback 26pp
