9 Magic Wishes

A collection of stories by

Magical new illustrations for a story by the author of The Lottery"

A girl is given nine wishes by a mysterious magician, and her choices perfectly capture a childlike imagination. For example, wish one is for an orange pony with a purple tail; wish two is for a squirrel holding a nut that opens and inside is a Christmas tree; wish eight is for a little box and inside is another box and inside is another box and inside is another box and inside that is an elephant . . . But the girl is hard pressed to make a ninth wish, and instead leaves it on a rock for some other lucky person to find.

Miles Hyman, who is the grandson of Shirley Jackson, has created paintings that capture the enchantment of the text, which was first published with different pictures in 1963 and has long been out of print.
