4. Three Wise Kings and a Wish

Undoubtedly, when we talk about the world of magic, magicians are the first characters that come to our minds. We imagine them wearing a top hat and a wand.

However, there are three well-known characters that every year perform the same kind of magic for children all over the world. Of course, we’re talking about the three wise kings.

This is why we wanted to include this book in today’s article. Can you imagine having the chance to gather Santa Claus and the three wise kings in one story? Well, that’s what happens here.

Actually, this happens because one of the three wise kings breaks his leg right before the big night. Therefore, he won’t be able to deliver gifts to children. In order to solve this problem, a little girl travels all the way to Lapland, to ask Santa for help.

This is a really funny book for children over six years old, which includes fantastic drawings to attract the little ones’ attention.
