  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Heather | 2/10/2014

    " I love "be careful what you wish for" stories. The plot is a little predictable for adults, but this was written for children, and is a five-star book for kids. Not only do the characters' wishes turn out EXACTLY as they wish, but they all end up with what they SHOULD have wished for at the end. A fun, quick read. "

    " A simple, well-written little book. I loved it (and was a bit freaked out by it) when I was young, and I love it now. "

    " I think this book is very GOOD! I like it, it was amazing about the fore shadowing, the word choice! Wow, I'd like to read this book over and over again! "

About the Author
Author Bill Brittain

Bill Brittain’s tales of the rural New England village of Coven Tree are well loved by children of all ages. The Wish Giver was a Newbery Honor Book, and both The Wish Giver and Devil’s Donkey were named ALA Notable Children’s Books as well as School Library Journal Best Books. Dr. Dredd’s Wagon of Wonders was a 1988 Children’s Editors’ Choice (ALA Booklist), and Professor Popkin’s Prodigious Polish was named a “Pick of the Lists” by American Bookseller. Mr. Brittain has written many other delightful books, which have also received high acclaim. Among these are All the Money in the World, which won the 1982–1983 Charlie May Simon Children’s Book Award and was adapted for an ABC-TV Saturday Special; and The Fantastic Freshman, which was named an ALA Recommended Book for Reluctant Young Adult Readers. Mr. Brittain lives with his wife, Ginny, in Asheville, North Carolina.
