Jonah's Nana has always told him that some dandelions are magical and can grant wishes. When a wish turns Jonah into a pirate, the text invites prereaders to help him navigate the choppy waters and escape the sea monsters he meets by blowing like the wind, making faces, and doing raspberries. In Maya Tatsukawa's digital illustrations—which look like beautifully textured collages—all of these perils are cute rather than scary, and when things get tough, Super-Nana swoops in to recue Jonah.
