I want to be Philberta

Image of item
Mary's dad wants to be rich. Mary's mom wants to live in a better house. The principal of her school wants to retire, and her teacher wants to be her new principal. Like all of the other grown-ups in the little girl's life, they spend their time wishing for things that they believe will leave them feeling completely satisfied. So why do they look at Mary as if she were some kind of freak? Just because she's got a wish of her own: to be Philberta! Maybe the mysterious storybook that Mary always carries with her can help putting an end to all these useless wishes. Because I Want to be Philberta reminds us there's nothing more gratifying than letting yourself get carried away in the fantasy of a good book.
