Description
A popular modern classic by the well-loved, and always thought-provoking David McKee, telling us that things don't always turn out the way you think they will
When Charlotte's Aunt Jane gives her a piggy bank, Charlotte thinks it is a silly present. Until she finds out that the piggy bank is magical and if she saves enough she will get a wish. At last the piggy bank is full enough, but then Charlotte learns that wishes sometimes turn out as you least expect them too.



About the Author
David McKee grew up in Devon, England. Later, while a student at Plymouth Art College, he began selling his cartoon drawings to newspapers. Since 1964 he has published a number of successful books for children, including the King Rollo stories, which he helped animate for British television. His first book for Lothrop was Snow Woman, of which Publishers Weekly said, "It is McKee's superb humor--conveyed almost solely in the illustrations...that wins the day." Of his second Lothrop book, Who's a Clever Baby, Publishers Weekly had this to say: "Grandma's alliterative frenzies are fascinating and readers will find Baby's manipulative stubbornness vastly amusing."

Mr. McKee enjoys traveling and doing books that "leave things unsaid."
