The Wish Giver is about a man named Thaddeus Blinn who shows up at the annual church social and takes the town of Coven Tree by surprise. He guarantees to give the four people who go into his tent whatever their hearts desire for only fifty cents. He warns them to be very specific when making their wishes. One girl wants to be friends with the two most popular girls in town. Another wants the traveling salesman that she is in love with to stay in Coven Tree and the boy wants water on their property so that he does not have to go across town to get it out of the creek. These three people make their wishes and they come true, but not the way that they expected. I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a very good book and was hard to put down. It is full of twists and turns. It is funny and imaginative. People are always wishing for things they want. This book shows in a funny way that you have to be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. The three kids in this book learned the hard way about making wishes.

    Dark start to this book

    I only made into about the first 3-4 chapters and I just didn't enjoy reading it. It seemed to start out rather dark and negative and didn't feel good to be reading outloud to my kids so I stopped. Does anyone else feel this way?
