Willoughby & the Lion

Willoughby & the Lion, by Greg Foley

One morning, Willoughby Smith encounters a magnificent, enchanted, golden lion sitting on top of the big rock in the middle of his backyard. The lion has the power to grant 10 wishes, but he tells Willoughby, unless Willoughby wishes for the most wonderful thing of all, the lion will be stuck on the rock forever.
Willoughby begins wishing...the fastest shoes in the world...a hot-air balloon submarine (with an escape helicopter)...x-ray glasses...and much more...finally he reaches wish number 9 and he still hasn't wished for the most wonderful thing of all...what will he tenth and final wish be?...
