Title: A Boy Like You and Me
Author: Eva Maria Schwarz-Pretner
Illustrated by: Fatima Aldarmaki
Genre: Children’s picture book
A young ordinary boy–“like you and me”–learns that he has the extraordinary ability to wish for things that come true! He wishes for a neck as long as a giraffe so he can see past the tall woman sitting in front of him at the movie theater and asks for wings like a butterfly so he can fly to the park more quickly than the bus will take him there. But with his improved abilities, will he truly be content with who he is?
