Author Name:Worthen, Diane


Oliver's Wish, a charming tale told in verse, is a tale of a wish come true that goes wrong. 
When the wooden flamingo Oliver's wish to fly, through an act of nature, comes true, it takes him on an adventurous and frightful flight in which he learns, through many mishaps, who and what he truly is and where he really wishes to be.

From the Author

"While painting in my garden, I became acquainted with the little garden creatures that were  to became the Others in my garden tales. 
I was soon sketching them into designs for T-shirts and cards.
When a tall wooden flamingo with creaking wings was placed in my garden, he  became the perfect protagonist for my garden tale, "Oliver's Wish", the first garden tale to be published."
