Antonia is sick of being bullied by Rosie, a mean girl at school. So when new girl Clarissa joins the school, Ant wishes Rosie would pick on her instead. But in Ant's seaside village they have a special way of making wishes: children write down their wish, put it in a lobster creel and row it out to Wishcatchers Point. Any wishes that disappear really do come true. But is it just coincidence or do the Wishcatchers really exist? When Rosie starts to bully Clarissa, Ant realises her mistake and tries to help. Perhaps if they can find out why Rosie is such a bully, and make her wishes come true, they can all become friends. And will the strange shell necklace that Ant has found help them to finally uncover the mystery of the Wishcatchers? This is a wonderful story of friendship and magic that will enchant its readers.
