Book Review: The Wishing Ball

The Wishing Ball is a story of a kitten named Nellie who is full of wishes. When a mischievous crow decides to beat boredom by playing a trick on Nellie and giving her a fake wishing ball. Nellie puts all her hopes into this wishing ball and even though she soon discovers it's not the magic ball she thought it was, it turns out to be exactly what she needed. Much to her surprise -and the crow's as well! - Nellie's wishes come true one by one as she follows the ball into a faraway town.

This lively story with graceful illustrations is charming and endearing and teaches a very valuable lesson - we each have the power to create our own magic.
