Three Wishes

Delacorte Press 1992

“Find a penny on New Year’s Day with your birthday year on it, and you can make three wishes on it and the wishes will came true! It happened to me,” explains Nobie. As each of Nobie’s wishes comes true, she discovers the really important things in life.

Originally published in 1976, Lucille Clifton’s Three Wishes is given renewed life through Michael Hays’s luminous new illustrations that are as magical–and as heartwarming-as the text.
