really liked it
Recommended for: fantasy and comedy fans

Four children find a coin that grants them half a wish. Unfortunately, they don't find out about the magic until each one accidentally makes a wish including their mother. The children have wacky adventures through the desert, king arthur's court, and at the movies. They must learn to wish wisely or surely they will be stuck! Should they tell an adult? What if the coin runs out of wishes? A great fantasy book for 4th grade and up.

Food for thought: If you had one wish what would it be?

Michele I'd wish to have the coin that grants wishes ;)

Paige Wegele but you'd only get half a coin.
and the half a coin would only give half the wishes of a full coin. So you would end up getting 1/4 of every wish.
