When a poor woodcutter named John rescues an elf in distress, the elf rewards him with three magic wishes. Later, John and his wife Martha sit dreaming of all the lovely things they could ask for. But as the hours pass and John begins to get hungry, a chance remark begets not riches but a string of sizzling, succulent sausages! The argument this causes between the couple leads to a very silly situation, which only their last remaining wish can put right. Jessica Souhami's gorgeous cut-paper collages and short, rhythmic text make this a perfect book for reading aloud.

About the Author

Jessica Souhami studied at the Central School of Art and Design. In 1980 she formed Mme Souhami and Co, a travelling puppet company using colourful shadow puppets with a musical accompaniment and a storyteller. Her illustrations, like her puppets, use brilliant colour and bold shapes and her characters leap and swoop across the spreads.


This boldly illustrated picture-book with its well honed narrative is a vivid and down-to-earth treatment of the traditional cautionary tale about how important it is to mind your language if you've been granted a wish. Books for Keeps Souhami's background in Art and Design shines through on every page, with her skill as a puppeteer and storyteller making this a highly creative project. Young children will love the funny twists in the tale! Excellent for sharing - a bit of a 'banger' in fact! Carousel
