But other people seem to be getting grumpy. Dad’s in a bad mood because the tree lights are all tangled up. Mum’s tired from all the shopping and cooking.

Then, one day, Rosie finds Mrs Hawthorn’s purse in the street. When she returns it, Mrs Hawthorn gives Rosie a wish from her garden. Huh, thinks Rosie, a wish. What good are they? I’d rather have fifty pence. Still, she shuts her eyes and blows on a special dandelion clock and one little wish floats away to where good wishes go…
