The Fish with a Wish And Other Stories
“I don’t want to be tiny and small, I wish I was big and tall,” said the fish.
Little fish wants to be bigger. In his quest to become a big fish he meets many interesting characters under the sea who offer him advice and at the end there is a surprise in store!
Goose is bored. One day she runs away and goes in search of a big adventure. Unfortunately things don’t turn out so well as she had hoped… maybe life on the farm isn’t so bad.
The one thing that Snail is very proud of is his sparkly, glittery trail. He’s terribly sad when he suddenly loses it, but luckily a wise old lady snail puts him back on track.
Young children will love the bouncy rhythms and vivid storytelling of these three delightful, simple tales in one book, The Fish with a Wish!

The sun is out, bank holidays are in, we all want to go and explore, although this can sometimes be ruined by the dreaded mistral (p14). But let’s not spoil things. How about a visit to St Jean du Fos (p20) or if you’re feeling more urban, a nice shopping day in Avignon with a healthy tea break (p23) or a visit to an art gallery in Nîmes? (p17) If you’re feeling extra energetic like me, how about entering the Pont du Gard race on 30 June to raise money for a fantastic local charity? Also in this issue, the remarkable story of a simulated space mission by Claire (p18) and a very funny article by Bernice on her pathological inability (or so she says) to learn languages (p22).
