A Newbery Honor Book that the New York Times called an eerie delight, The Wish Giver is an engaging literary folk story about those who get what they wish for--whether they want it or not.The people of Coven Tree are no strangers to magic. In fact, the town's very name comes from a gnarled old tree where covens of witches used to gather. Even now, imps and fiends continue to appear, frightening the townsfolk with their devilish pranks. Usually these creatures are easy to spot. They have a particular smell, or sound, or way of moving, that betrays their dark nature. But Thaddeus Blinn showed none of these signs when he came to Coven Tree. He was just a funny little man who drifted into town with a strange tale about being able to give people whatever they wished--for only fifty cents.There was nothing scary about him. At least, not until the wishing began...Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Bill BrittainPublisher: HarperCollinsPublished: 04/02/2019ISBN: 9780064401685Pages: 192Weight: 0.30lbsSize: 7.59h x 5.14w x 0.46dAward: Newbery Medal - Honor BookReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 06/27/1987Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 499 / Wish GiverReading Level: 4.4 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 4
