I believe one of the most important ingredients of a child’s book is an appealing and adorable character. In The Granted Wish, by J.S. Skye, that character is Flurry. This little bear is a mischievous bundle of curiosity who gets himself into all kinds of difficulties. Much to the dismay of his parents, he gets into more trouble than he can handle and the consequences lead his life in a whole different direction. As Flurry goes through his journey, he comes up against his own ideas of beauty and humility. But not all is lost as Christopher Kringle steps in to help him learn to be a better bear.
This is a sweet story about love and consequences, vanity and growth. The Granted Wish by J.S. Skye is a unique winter tale filled with charm. It also teaches good life lessons in a way that allows children to hear and learn. Flurry is a wonderful scamp who has a long way to go, and I believe this is what makes him so relatable to child readers. This book is perfect for curling up on the couch together on a winter night while your children are waiting for the holidays. The writing is perfect for a young reader, with plenty of imagery and action to keep their attention. J.S. Skye creates a terrific world of magical characters and brings a fresh perspective to Christmas tales. I recommend this book to any young family that wants to bring a little wintry magic into their holidays.
