Who could that be? I’m not expecting anyone. And neither is my mom.


Breanna: “I’m coming.”

Fairy Godmother: “Hello Breanna. It’s me, your fairy godmother.”
Breanna: “Hey, I haven’t seen you in ages.”
Fairy Godmother: “I know; but I thought I’d come around and give you a surprise visit, along with a surprise present.”
Breanna: “A surprise present? What is it?”
Fairy Godmother: “It’s a wish. You can wish for whatever your heart desires.”
Breanna: “Any wish at all? Anything?”
Fairy Godmother: “That’s right. Absolutely anything. What would you most like in the world?”

Breanna: “Hmmm. Let me think . . . I know. I wish I had a million wishes.
Fairy Godmother: “That’s so clever. I’ve never known anyone to wish for a million wishes before. All right you can have a million wishes.

Okay. The next million things you want, you’ll get.”

Breanna: “How will you know I’ve made a wish?”
Fairy Godmother: “Oh, I’ve got an alert on my phone, giving me a notification every time you say the words, ‘I wish’.
Breanna: “Okay, thanks so much for this. You’re the best.”
Fairy Godmother: “My pleasure. Well, I’ve got to go now. See you soon.”


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Hmmm. A million wishes. Well, for a start, I wish I had a hundred dollars.



.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


I wish the chores would do themselves . . . nice!


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


This is too hard. I wish my homework was all done. Huh! Neat!


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Perfect. Now I can just sit down, play on my phone and relax.


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Fairy Godmother: “Yes. A million wishes . . . hold on . . . Yes, it’s very clever, but . . . hold on . . . it’s getting silly now. She just wished that her nose didn’t itch, rather than scratching it herself.

I think I’m going to teacher her a bit of a lesson.

I know!


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Breanna: “Oh, that dog is soooo cute. I wish I had a dog.

Where’s the dog?

I meant a real dog.

Wait. Wasn’t my phone in this hand?

She’s replaced my phone with a stuffed, toy dog.
Oh my gosh.

Okay, just calm down. It’s all good.

I wish that I had a brand new phone.


What? I wished for a brand new phone, not a bone.

This is awful.

You know what? I wish that all my wishes would stop going wrong.


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Rinnnnnng. Rinnnnnng.

Breanna: “What? How is this thing ringing.

Fairy Godmother: “Hi Breanna. It’s me, your Fairy Godmother. I’m outside.”

“Hello Breanna. So do you know why your wishes have started to go wrong?”
Breanna: “I think so. I think I’ve been asking you for too much. And making you do too much work.

Fairy Godmother: “That’s right.”
Breanna: “I’m sorry. And I have just one last wish: I wish I were a nicer person who didn’t upset her Fairy Godmother.
Fairy Godmother: “Oh Breanna. I can’t grant that wish.”
Breanna: “Why not?”
Fairy Godmother: “Because you’re already a nice person. If you wish that, it will make a difference, silly.”
Breanna: “So we’re still friends?”
Fairy Godmother: “And don’t worry: I’ve put your phone back the way it was. Everything’s fine. And you can still have your wishes; just don’t make too many at once. Okay?
Breanna: “Okay, Thank you Fairy Godmother.
Fairy Godmother: “My pleasure. But I must go again, Breanna. Goodbye.
Branna: “Bye.”
