In book two, The Magic Wish, the girls find a coupon in a cereal box stating that it is good for one wish. The catch, however, is that the wish is good for only two days, after which the wish will no longer exist. Katie and Kimble must decide and agree on one wish and after a bit of thought, come up with the perfect one! What is it that they wish for and how will it forever change the girls' lives as well as Katie's family's life?
When I was introduced to Katie and Kimble in A Ghost Story, I immediately feel under the spell of their story. This series of books takes me back to my own childhood - the days of The Boxcar Children and Little House on the Prairie. That innocence of childhood, which sadly does not exist for long in today's world. These stories bring out a child's imagination and allows them to soar into a place all there own. The Katie and Kimble stories do just that - they are innocent, simplistic and just what children need. The innocence of trust, friendship and love shines through on each and every page.
I found it interesting, also, that in The Magic Wish, health and environmentally conscience issues a touched upon. Such ways include the use of cloth grocery bags, the mention of not putting nails in a tree when putting up a swing, and the fact that they drink rice milk and do not consume much in the way of red meat. This brings a touch of modern to a rather old fashioned type of story, I think, thereby opening up even more issues that can be talked about and discussed within the book.
Readers (and parents) looking for a wholesome and rewarding story will be incredibly satisfied with Katie & Kimble - through both A Ghost Story and The Magic Wish. This is an amazing and timeless series that I can see being read by generations to come. My seven year old daughter and I both adore these books and cannot wait for the third in the series to come out, hopefully later this year.
Katie & Kimble: The Magic Wish makes a perfect gift and a perfect read - especially with summer upon us and those lazy hot days ahead.
