Summary of "The Wish"

A boy decides to play a game with a carpet. The carpet has yellow, black and red squares and so he decides that he can only step on the yellow. The black squares are snakes that will bite him, if he touched them, and the red squares are red-hot lumps of coal that will burn him, if he touched them. The boy must carefully get to the other side of the carpet, by only stepping on the yellow squares. If he manages to get across safely, he will be given a puppy for his birthday the next day. Can he get across safely? You must read the story to find out.
