I cannot wait for both my kids to read this book and for the three of us to discuss and create scenarios of how a sequel will turn out to be, if any. The story is flexible enough to either be a stand-alone novel, or the beginning of a series. I am hoping for the former. Recommended reading!!
Harvell has crafted a world which is a delight for both kids and adults. Will Cricket, along with some of the other zany characters, are all extremely well crafted and very likeable. What makes them so interesting is that they are unique and memorable in their own special way. The standout character is of course Will, whose an overweight kid who is constantly bullied, but one can appreciate his contagious optimism. The overall plot of the book is fun, engaging, and one that will keep readers turning the pages. There are some moments of corniness and tropes that are overused, but I do not think they really do the book injustice. If you have children, especially middle grade, I definitely think this is a must for them to read!
The story is definitely unique and has some great twists and turns to it. It isn't too long or too short--just right for a middle grade book. There are quite a few characters though, and sometimes I had a hard time keeping track of them, and because of that, the story got a little confusing in places, but not enough to put a damper on the fun of reading this. I'd definitely recommend this to kids--and adults too!
Nik's Picks Book Reviews
(The author provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.)
But what really speaks volumes about it, is the way my niece/nephew enjoyed it. She's 8 and my nephew is 12 and they both got a kick out of it.
The only problem? Every other book out there has a sequel....they are begging for more!
For Will’s wish to come true, however, he must become a wish agent himself granting seven wishes during the course of a week. During that time he receives a daily unique super power called a Mizm. For example, one day he can fly to grant the needed wish while the next he may have super speed. Each power helps him ensure a wish to come true.
Will soon learns that danger lurks in every dark corner as Harvell and Lund unleashes a plot with surprising twists and turns.
