The Wish Carvers
Author: Kathleen Gauer
Publisher: Skipping Stone Press
When two sibling elves, Fay and Eddie, come across an old carving knife with the words, “what’s carved with me will come to be” on the handle, they decide to carve and paint a pot of gold, a large stone cottage, and finally a fairy tale castle. But with each wish granted comes more and more complications. Can they find a way to return to their peaceful life?
A fun read that takes young readers on a wonderful trek of curiosity and surprise.
