The Lovereading4Kids comment
An entertaining and surprising adventure, this shows that wishing can be dangerous as Kevin soon finds out after accidentally letting his wish list fall in the river. When Abandinus becomes his own personal god, Kevin’s life takes off in some unexpected directions. While much of what the god brings has its good side there are some aspects he’d very much rather be without!
Wishful Thinking by Ali Sparkes
It's just a regular trip for Kevin, and he comes back with just the regular sorts of things. Some local fudge, a scented candle for his mum ...and his own personal god. It's Abandinus, a little-known Celtic deity, who has suddenly found a new purpose in his eternal life-sorting out Kevin's. With a god on your side, everything's going to get a lot easier, isn't it? After all, a god can get stuff done. The trouble is, it's not always the kind of stuff Kevin has in mind ...
... Oh, what fun this is!
'This is a splendidly eventful read, with welcome collateral possibilities for learning some obscure and enchanting history.'
'Beneath the humour, magic and excitement of this engaging novel are far deeper concerns which are satisfyingly, and realistically, resolved.'
