Lily the Elf: The Wishing Seed: Lily the elf lives with Dad and Granny under a bridge in the city. She has broken her dress-up crown and wishes on a dandelion seed for a princess crown, then waits, not very patiently. Granny advises “fixing things works better than wishing,” and lends a helping hand so Lily can finally get her wish. This great new series for beginner readers has large text and fun illustrations.
