This story opens up with the words “I wish”. Each character in the book is wishing for something, Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's festival, Jack, a simple young man who wishes that his cow, Milky White, would give milk, and the Baker and his Wife, who wish they could have a child. While Little Red Riding hood buys bread from the Baker to take to her grandmother's house. And just like the Wizard Of Oz each of these characters goes on a journey to get what they wish for, just like Dorothy, the scarecrow, the tin man, and the lion. In the beginning it is revealed that an old ugly witch has placed a spell on the bakers line so that they wouldn’t be able to have a kid.
