A heartwarming chapter book about the relationship between a little girl, an endearing old couple, and their very special pet store.
Sophie lives in a tall, tall building that overlooks a large green park. In the middle of the park is the biggest, strangest, most wonderful pet shop in the world. Built like a ship, with tall glass sails stretching to the sky, the pet shop is called The Noahs' Ark.
Every evening Sophie makes three secret wishes as she gazes at the ark in the park. She wishes for a pet, she wishes for cousins, and she wishes that she could visit The Noahs' Ark. Over at The Noahs' Ark, the owners of the pet shop, Mr. and Mrs. Noah, also make a secret wish--the same one every time. They wish that they had grandchildren.
On a very special birthday, Sophie and the Noahs finally meet. In the days that follow, they all learn that wishes sometimes do come true.
