From School Library Journal PreS—The renowned duo who created Duck! Rabbit! (2009) and Wumbers (2012, both Chronicle), has teamed up again to present a compendium of pleasant images and cleverly stated, feel-good wishes. "I wish you more ups than downs. I wish you more give than take." Each spread features children of various ethnicities and a simple comparative blessing, each beginning with "I wish."
