Book Review: Three Wishes by David Melling - Reviewed by (08 Jul 2013)

After reading the kiss that missed we had to read The three wishes.

The Knight had the responsibility to babysit Prince and Princess while the king was away for the weekend.

A series of mishaps happen and the Knight and his horse end up coming across some magic and three wishes, this is where the story becomes quite amusing when the wishes don’t go according to plan.

The book flows nicely and is allot of fun to read as it rhymes extremely well. The illustrations are excellent, large and colorful and some of the scenes are very well portrayed and amusing.
