Baker & Taylor
When four siblings wish on a star, each gets only a fraction of what he or she wanted, but when they combine their wishes, they just might get a whole new pet.

Baker & Taylor
When Petey and his siblings only get a fraction of what they ask for after wishing on a star, the children have to find a way to combine their wishes in order to get the one thing they collectively want--one whole pet!

Petey wishes on the first star he sees, but instead of the dollar he hopes for, he gets only a quarter. The next night his little brother Joey wishes for a cookie--and gets just half of one. The twins, Sally and Samantha, don't fare much better.

Try as they might, the children each wind up with a fraction of what they wished for. Can they figure out how to combine their wishes to wind up with one whole, happy pet?

This charming blend of storytelling and math will keep young readers engaged till the very end.
