A child makes a series of wishes. The wishing begins with something focused on the child's own well-being, but as the story unfolds the child looks beyond, to make dream-time wishes for all the world.

I Wish Tonight is her fourth book.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
The evening sky darkens, the stars will shine bright,
But which is the first star that I'll see tonight?
I wish that I may, oh, I wish that I might
Have everything that I wish for tonight.
I wish for a silver moon sailing on high
Through the shape-shifting oceans of clouds in the sky
And a warm gentle breeze that will sing and will sign
In the tall swaying treetops as it passes by.
I wish for a bed with a sail and an oar
That will float on the shadows so dark on the floor;
As the wind fills the sails to the sky it will soar
And take me up high to a faraway shore.
In the land of beyond all my dreams will come true.
I'll do all the things that I so want to do;
I'll have great adventures the whole
