Summary

"Looking for a fantastically fast-paced and funny read? Your wish is granted!" --Chris Grabenstein, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library

Twelve-year-old Ace's life is about to change in the most unexpected and magical ways--all because of a peanut butter jar.

When he opens it, he inadvertently releases a genie named Ridge. Now a Wishmaker, Ace is given a week to complete a seemingly impossible quest, and if he fails the world will end in the most tragic (but cuddly) way imaginable.

Luckily, Ridge can help by granting Ace an unlimited number of wishes...as long as Ace is willing to accept the consequences. The bigger the wish, the greater the consequence. So, if Ace wants to avoid having pogo sticks for legs or his clothes turn invisible, he'll have to be careful what he wishes for and get a little creative.

Perfect for fans of Dan Gutman and Max Brallier, this new middle grade series by Tyler Whitesides (author of the Janitors series) is a wonderful mix of unpredictable magic, zany humor, and daring adventure. You'll wish it never ends!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ace has no memory of his life before age nine, and he longs to know about his family. When he discovers a genie in a peanut butter jar, he thinks he might finally get his wish, but he quickly learns that each wish carries a less-than-desirable consequence. He also neglected to notice that opening the jar locked him into being a Wishmaker, and as such he must complete a difficult mission that will determine the fate of the world. As he and Ridge (his genie) race to accomplish their quest, he encounters two other Wishmakers on different quests, seemingly at odds with his own, and wonders if anyone can win. With only a week to complete their tasks, the three kids crisscross the U.S. by car, train, plane, and boat, going from one bizarre, frenetic adventure to another, and always facing some strange consequences for the wishes they use. Light on plot, setting, and characterization, but full of magic, this madcap series starter will appeal to middle-schoolers hoping for weird humor in their books.--Petty, J. B.
