She spots a twinkling light nestled in the trees one day, so seeks out the wise owl Beacon, who tells her that these magical lights are created from children’s wishes. Pixie friends, Glowbud and Gleam, weave magical pixie string and hang lanterns to lead the way to The Wishlight Village… Tune in to watch the animated version of our new book on your lodge TV every evening between 6pm – 8.30pm.
