  1. I love the fantasy characters and magic in fairy tales. You can let your imagination roam free. Hope you have the chance to read my new picture book The Wish Carvers a never-been-told-before fairy tale about two sibling elves that come across a knife with the words “what’s carved with me will come to be” on the handle.
