A heartwarming story about wishing and hope.

On a last long hot summer day, Sam and Jo watch the breeze blow dandelion seeds up into the air. Sam remembers that if you blow ALL the seeds in one breath you can make a wish.... Shhh...Listen! Can you hear the music on the breeze? What could it be? It's the carnival come to town! Sam and Jo enjoy the rides and games and fireworks-all the wonders of a magical fair created just for them. And in the end, when the tents and clowns and animals are gone, readers will wonder with them if it was all a dream-or will their next wish come true, too? Combined with the lyrical text, exuberant paintings capture the joy of a dreamy childhood moment, and a treat for the imagination.
