Read full description of the books:
A delightful picture book loosely based upon the Charles Dickens story" The Magic Fishbone."
When Molly's fairy godmother tells her that she will find a magic fishbone that will grant her but one wish, all her brothers and sisters want to know what Molly will wish for. There are many things Molly would like, and so many ways in which a wish would come in handy, but she decides to wait until she knows exactly what she wants.
Enchanting, old-fashioned illustrations depict a wondrous nineteenth-century London alive with elegantly clad cats, pigs, goats, birds, and other two- and four-legged creatures in Barbara McClintock's delightful reminder that patience and practicality are rewarded.

Barbara drew constantly as a child. By the time she was seven, she knew she would be an artist when she grew up. Her older sister recommended she be a childrens' book illustrator, and this proved to be a rare instance when she followed her sister's advice. Barbara also wanted to be a cat when she grew up, and is glad she had art as a back up plan.
The first part of Barbara's growing up was in Clinton, NJ. Her early influences were her photographer father, seamstress/teacher mother, and the cartoon character Top Cat.
Barbara moved to North Dakota when she was 9 with her mother and sister after her parents divorced. She continued to draw through middle and high school, frequently in the margins of her tests and homework.
Barbara attended Jamestown College in North Dakota, where she refined her drawing skills by copying pictures in artbooks she checked out of her college library.
Two weeks after her 20th birthday, Barbara moved to New York City to begin her career on the recommendation of Maurice Sendak, whon she called from North Dakota for advice about how to become a children's book illustrator.
Barbara studied for two months at the Art Student's League in New York City. She continued to copy from art books she checked out of libraries, and sketched paintings and drawings in museums in New York City. Barbara is essentially self-taught as an artist/illustrator.
After illustrating books written by other authors, Barbara began writing as well as producing the artwork for her own books.
She currently lives in rural Connectucut with the illustrator David A. Johnson, their cats Pip and Emma, and David's truly gorgeous rose garden.
