One year ago, a monster stole Lorelei's family during a camping trip. The police don't believe her. Neither do her aunt and uncle. So she sets out to find her family and breaks into the Wishing World, a place where children become their own heroes. In the Wishing World, a child with imagination can make what they most need. These children are called "Doolivantis." Unfortunately, the monster who stole Lorelei’s family is also a Doolivanti. To save them, she must find the courage to face him, or her next wish may be her last.

praise for The wishing world

"Whimsical and imaginative, with just the right mix of humor, heart, and adventure. THE WISHING WORLD is everything you could wish for in a story--and so much more!"

-Shannon Messenger, author of Keeper of the Lost Cities


"Mysterious disappearances, fantastical magic, plucky characters, and just the right touch of whimsy - if you are lucky enough to get lost in THE WISHING WORLD, you'll find an enchanting new adventure awaits you there."

-Marissa Burt, author of Storybound   


“Whimsical and highly imaginative, THE WISHING WORLD is a book children will be clamoring for, saying as the plucky protagonist Lorelei might, “Double ‘yes, please’ with a ‘gimmie, gimmie’ on top!’”

​-Edith Cohn, author of Spirit's Key
