MM Allen had a dream. She dreamt that a little being of light was standing outside her front door. The being bent down, cupped its tiny hands and blew its breath through the keyhole. The breath filled her home with an extraordinary, beautiful light. Out of this dream was born Tickety Boo and the Black Trunk; into the land of Wishapick.
MM shared her dream and idea for a story about this little being of light with Deborah Wynne. The first song, Tickety Boo, came to Deborah as if the music was just waiting to be written. MM shared the events and characters of the developing story and song after song came to Deborah.
Wishapick - Tickety Boo and the Black Trunk; born from a dream into a terrific ‘children of all ages’ novel with a highly original plot and delightful characters. Out of the music, inspired by the enchanting story, flowed imaginatively orchestrated melodies and vocals which transpose one into the magical land of Wishapick.
