Nine Magic Wishes

by Shirley Jackson
Paperback
Publication Date: 16/12/2015
RRP  $18.99 $18.50
It begins on a most unusual day, when a blue sun rises in a green sky and dozens of balloons fly from every tree. And when a magician in a long black coat and a starry hat turns up, the sights become even stranger. The magician grants a lucky child nine wishes, each more marvelous than the last ― an orange pony with a purple tail, a garden with candy flowers, a pocket-sized zoo, and other whimsical wonders.
Master storyteller Shirley Jackson, author of the short-story classic "The Lottery," collaborated with artist Lorraine Fox to create this winsome picture book. Illustrated with brilliantly colored two-page spreads, this vivid fantasy will transport young readers to a world of enchantment.

Shirley Jackson

Shirley Jackson was born in San Francisco in 1916. She first received wide critical acclaim for her short story The Lottery, which was published in 1949. Her novels - which include The Sundial, The Bird's Nest, Hangsaman, The Road through the Wall, We Have Always Lived in the Castle and The Haunting of Hill House - are characterised by her use of realistic settings for tales that often involve elements of horror and the occult.

 Raising Demons and Life Among the Savages are her two works of nonfiction. Come Along With Me is a collection of stories, lectures, and part of the novel she was working on when she died in 1965.
