A yard full of dandelions, one small girl who believes in the power of a wish, and a world record, just waiting to be made

When Molly's neighbor, Pie, tries to mow down her dandelions, Molly insists that dandelions aren't weeds--they're wishes in the making Molly is convinced that if she grows enough dandelions she can make the world's biggest wish ever, a world record Pie has a few ideas about what she should wish for, and soon, everyone in town is coming up with wishes. They've asked Molly to choose the very biggest wish for the world record, but it won't be easy for her to decide. With a light touch and whimsical style, this inviting picture book tugs at the heartstrings and reminds us all of what is most important in life.
