What makes Horatio's One Wish stand apart from other children's books is that Good is able to triumph over Evil without violence. For this reason, Horatio's One Wish is an ideal read-aloud book for children as young as five-years-old. Yet at the same time, the suspense, mystery, adventure, and humor of the story appeal to children through 5th grade and older.
"Horatio's One Wish is in the style and genre of Charlotte's Web," raves The Midwest Book Review, which calls this new novel "unforgettable," "gently inspiring," and "a must" read.
The "amiable and resourceful characters" in Horatio's One Wish take you on "a journey with considerable suspense" writes Publisher Weekly.
"All the right elements for an epic read-aloud adventure," says Seattle Child's Magazine.
Horatio has lived alone as long as he can remember. His only friend is a river otter named Rollic, who visits him nearly every day. But when Rollic goes missing, Horatio knows he must try to find him. With the help of hamster twins, Whisklet and Whimser, Horatio embarks on an adventure beyond anything he could have dreamed. Along the way, Horatio meets Leala, a champion archer from the hedgehog village--a village Horatio never knew existed. Leala opens a door to a home Horatio has yearned for all his life. Will Horatio continue on and risk his life to rescue his friend or will he follow Leala back to his long-lost home?
Horatio's One Wish takes you into a world full of magic and mystery, of woodland creatures and strange beasts. A humorous and heartwarming story that shows what true friendship means.
