The Big Wish by Brandon Robshaw. If you had a million wishes, what would you do with them? When eleven-year-old Sam wishes on a star and it comes true, he decides to change his life. But when he discovers that changing things has consequences that aren't always good, it's then that he begins to think again.

I do out-loud bedtime reading with my three boys, and often dont with a few notable exceptions write reviews for the books we read together. But Ive decided Im going to start. However, I also realize an adults review of a kids book has only a certain usefulness.

So Ive asked my kids if theyll contribute to these reviews and theyve reluctantly agreed. My older kids have wised up to me, and correctly suspect this is my attempt to disguise So today marks the start of something new for me. From my perspective it has almost no redeeming qualities.

It seemed written in 5 minutes. The tacked-on message at the end was kinda nice i. The plot is simple enough: a kid gets a million wishes from a shooting star and goes about wishing for typically immature stuff like huge hamburgers but also some more poignant and selfless things like healing for his best-friends sick dad, and a promotion for his own dad etc… The reason I hated it is twofold: 1 the plot is inconsistent and illogical. But it was a little fun and nice and I recommend it to smaller kids around years old.

I like it a bit but it felt a little fake. There were no real adventures or excitements. Number of nights of bedtime reading: About 7 nights I'm rather stumped by other reviews that give this low ratings.

I thought it was excellent! To me, this is the most intelligent 'wish granting' story I've come across. When I told students at my school I was reading a book about a boy granted wishes, they immediately said they'd wish for a million wishes.

Well, get what Sam wishes for when he sees a shooting star? An ideal situation, right? You could have anything you wanted, probably for as long as you lived.

Sam of course being 11, I'm rather stumped by other reviews that give this low ratings. Sam of course being 11, starts with food, and shares his good fortune with his best friend. He creates a supervillain for himself to fight, shrinks himself into a Honey I Shrunk the Kids adventure It's perfect KS2 storytelling stuff.

Where I thought it added to the genres was in the philosophical talk that comes in - when they wish for a giant sized burger, it's absolutely disgusting because of its giant size.

When they shrink to the size of ants, their bodies fall to earth and u]injure differently to human-sized ones. It seems biologically accurate and heaven forbid - educational! Eventually Sam decides to use his wishes for the good of more than himself and the idea of making everyone happy and cheerful all the time occurs to him, and then the very selfless plan to stop death Just what sort of world will Sam create? I can see why an year old might find this a little too much, there is some moral debating and questioning that does slow down the story as Sam ponders the rights and wrongs of what he does with his wishes.

But I would say a year old will thoroughly enjoy the wish-fulfilment story. Sam's a good boy and role model he uses wishes for his family as well as himself and his choices are similiar to many I'd have chosen myself at 11 if I had been granted wishes. I'll probably be buying copies for my school library and recommending the science teachers use some of the ideas in their KS3 lessons, that's how much I thought of this. Wonderfully fresh take on the wish-granting theme. Oct 29, Dimity Powell rated it liked it Shelves: kids-lit.

Unfortunately this book was not everything I wished for, or expected at least. The potential for greatness hangs over this story like a rain cloud waiting to burst but the first person narrative of Sam as he navigates his way through a million wishes just felt too forced for me. Moments of brilliance managed to poke their ways through towards the end however, when Sam is reconciles his childlike greed for casting wishes with the realisation that having everything you want at the drop of a wish, Unfortunately this book was not everything I wished for, or expected at least.

Moments of brilliance managed to poke their ways through towards the end however, when Sam is reconciles his childlike greed for casting wishes with the realisation that having everything you want at the drop of a wish, is not all it's cracked up to be. He discovers that it takes much more to keep the Earth spinning and the world evolving and thus must find a way to solve the enviable or not dilemma of how to use up a million wishes.

A thought provoking theme but essentially insubstantial story. Dec 13, Mr. A boy wishes upon a meteor for a million wishes - and his wish is granted. Kind of an interesting premise for a story, but for about two hundred pages, the seemingly limitless possibilities are It wasn't until the second to last chapter where Sam realizes that the good he is trying to do for the world backfires, with some curious consequences. But overall, I could not believe this book was even published.

It gets an extra star for mentioning the University of East A boy wishes upon a meteor for a million wishes - and his wish is granted. It gets an extra star for mentioning the University of East Anglia - a place I knew well in Jun 14, Suzanna E. Kinderboek dat vlot leest en beeldend geschreven is. De auteur doet een beetje te hard zijn best om grappig te zijn, waardoor de humor soms geforceerd overkomt. Leuk boek voor jongens die ervan dromen een superheld te zijn of de wereld te veranderen.

Wat een heel slim idee lijkt, namelijk wensen dat je 1 miljoen wensen mag doen, blijkt in de praktijk toch nog helemaal niet zo geweldig te lopen als Sem had verwacht.

Je moet er nog behoorlijk goed bij nadenken. Bijvoorbeeld wensen dat je supergroot bent en dan niet vergeten te zeggen dat je kleren ook mee moeten groeien. En Sem's wensen pakken soms ook een beetje anders uit, zoals je zusje per ongeluk van grote hoogte te pletter laten vallen Gelukkig kan je dan natuurlijk weer wensen dat Wat een heel slim idee lijkt, namelijk wensen dat je 1 miljoen wensen mag doen, blijkt in de praktijk toch nog helemaal niet zo geweldig te lopen als Sem had verwacht.

Gelukkig kan je dan natuurlijk weer wensen dat het ongeluk niet erg is en je zusje lekker verder leeft. Sem komt erachter dat het na een tijdje zelfs helemaal niet spannend is als je de hele wereld naar je hand kunt zetten. Het is gewoon saai En hoe kom je dan eigenlijk van al die wensen af???!

Plot Keywords. The plot wish simple enough: a kid gets big million wishes from a shooting star and goes about wishing for typically immature stuff like huge hamburgers wish also some more poignant and selfless things like healing for his best-friends sick dad, and a promotion for big own dad etc… The reason I see more it is twofold: 1 the plot is inconsistent and illogical. V young people watch and for a children's 'short' produced in for these reasons it is my opinion that the production value soars! A fairy prince is link to Earth to use wish magic power to grant big wishes, and meets a boy. Here, mariner Stout Sam and deckhand Pip eke out a comfortable existence on Butterfly Island ferrying cargo to and fro.

De auteur doet een beetje te hard zijn best big grappig te vig, waardoor de wish soms geforceerd overkomt. It's perfect KS2 storytelling stuff. That's what happens in this book, sometimes what you wish for may not turn out they way you think.
