9780006752974: Goosey Farm: The Wishing Tower (Goosey Farm Story)

The second story about Widget and her little brother Tim who moved from the city to the idyllic countryside of Devon, based on Gene Kemp’s own life.

When Widget sees an ancient tower on the old map, she is determined to find it. Together with the dogs, Hanna and Frizzy, she tracks it down, through the brambles and woods. Once she finds the Wishing Tower, it becomes her secret place, a place where she knows that all wishes will be granted – trouble at school and at home can be resolved. But when Mum falls ill, Widget is afraid. She goes to the Tower to wish for Dad to return from sea, but there’s someone else there…

A heart-warming story from one of today’s best-loved authors – Carnegie medalist Gene Kemp.

From the Back Cover:

"I knew as soon as I saw it, that this tower was magic."

When Widget finds an ancient map, she locates all the places that she and Tim have grown to love around Goosey Farm: the lane where her dog Russet was killed; the old burial chamber; the village, the church, the school and Rushford Wood.
And it's there, in the middle of the wood, that she sees the words 'The Tower'. Widget senses that magic cannot be far away. She sets off on a tower-hunt – through holly-bushes and brambles, over broken branches and strange plants. Framed by tall dark fir trees and encircled by a lawn of blue-green grass, Widget finds a very little grey stone tower – a magical place, where wishes made will all come true.

A heart-warming sequel to Dog's Journey from one of today's best-loved authors. Carnegie medallist Gene Kemp's exquisite writing brings a breath of fresh country air to all young readers.
