All Aboard The WISH Express! Next stop ADVENTURE!
In her very first novel, Ruth Plumly Thompson takes a boy and his dog on a magical trolley ride through the imagination!
Originally serialized in 1916 - this is the first-ever collection of the complete story! Thompson exhibits all of the qualities she later displayed when she took over writing the famous Wizard of Oz series. It’s a tale of self-discovery, talking animals, amazing little towns, great new friends, and a happy ending!
Our spiffy new trade-paperback features magical flip-book style TROLLEY ACTION! As you read along, the Wish Express Trolley zooms along the running-titles and if you flip through the pages you can watch the journey!
