Wishes

Written by Mượn Thị Văn, Illustrated by Victo Ngai

A family is preparing to leave during the night and a girl is watching. Night wishes to be darker. The bag wishes to be deeper. The sun wishes to be cooler. As the boatful of people are rescued, the girls wishes that she didn’t have to wish anymore. The illustrations are a beautiful addition to the simple text. This story is for everyone who has left someone or someplace behind to come to a new land.
