(card catalog description)

Tom
Tom is bored all the time. When he's given a homework assignment to write The Most Exciting Thing That Ever Happened to Me, Tom realizes that not one exciting thing has happened to him in his entire life. Then Tom makes a deal to trade places with a cat named Charley, and something very exciting happens. But Tom may never have the chance to write about his outrageous adventure...

Babette
Babette's mother, the queen, wishes for a perfect baby daughter, and her wish is granted. No one can see a single flaw in the child's appearance. In fact, no one can see Babette at all. But when Babette finds out that she's invisible, how ill she see herself?

Simon
Simon is an only child whose doting parents grant his every wish--until Simon's demands grow so big his parents have nothing left to give him. So Simon leaves home, determined to make his own greatest wish come true. He wants the whole world to admire him, and after a startling meeting with a magical bird, he has all the attention he dreamed of...but now he only wishes to be free of it once again.
