”Pish And Posh Wish for Fairy Wings” is a book about two unique characters. Their names are Pish and Posh of course! Posh is the smaller one who looks to be around 6-years-old while her friend Pish looks to be a teenager. Their names are so similar that I get them confused! Posh is the curious one, willing to try anything! Pish is the more cautious of the two, telling Posh to be more careful. This is a fun story book, an “I can read book,” and a magical quick read for children.
This story book contains how Pish and Posh get fairy wings. Posh made Pish breakfast and everything went fine except the toast. Pish asked why Posh always had to burn it. Pish liked things to be just right and said Posh was careless. The Fairy Handbook says they each have four chances to make a wish so they can earn their fairy wings. Pish says careless fairies who burn the toast do not get fairy wings; they are too “slapdash.” This makes Posh so upset that she runs to her room and plops down on her bed. Mub, the monster under the bed, tells her not to bounce and he understands why she is so mad. He too would be mad if somebody called him slapdash. Pish comes in and although she has always been afraid of the monster under the bed, she decides that this monster is not scary after all. Mub says he is not scary and gives her the puzzle piece he found and helps her complete her puzzle.
Posh opens the Fairy Handbook and starts marking pages, Pish tells her not to do that. Pish finally yells “I wish you would listen to me!” Mub says that she will not like that wish. The wish worked only too well. Posh did all of the things that Pish wanted her to do: making perfect toast, erasing the lines in the book, finding Posh’s lost book. Later, Pish says now we will read a story, but Posh is way too busy. Pish noticed that Posh was not humming, skipping, or fussing. She decides that she does not like this new Posh after all. So Pish wish, wish, wishes Posh was back. Now there were Poshes everywhere, singing songs, laying in the hammock, and eating. Pish throws herself on the bed wondering which one was the real Posh. She says I wish everything was back the way it was. Now there is only one Posh, but she has used up all, but one wish to earn her fairy wings. Pish says if only Posh was not so slapdash, she would not have wasted them all. Posh says it was slapdash to waste three wishes.
Mub tells them that friends should not fight. Pish says who asked Mub and wishes he would disappear. Posh says that was a horrible wish and wishes for Mub to come back. Only his voice came back. Pish and Posh decide to read the Fairy Handbook to find out how to get Mub back, body and voice. They try not to argue, or be bossy, or read too fast. They sit down together to read the book. The very end of the Fairy Handbook said: now you know how to wish wisely. The monster under the bed came back and Posh had shiny fairy wings! Posh wishes for Pish to have fairy wings too and then they hear a noise. It is the bed rising up taller so they can plop on the bed without Mub’s head getting hit all of the time. The book ends with a picture of the two fairies with their brand new wings jumping on the tall bed.
This is a great book with brightly colored illustrations portraying the little fairies and the monster under the bed. All are in color and detailed to show story details with cute pictures of both girls. Eye-catching and interesting pictures go so well along with the story. A great quick story book for children. My daughter enjoyed the book about earning fairy wings!
