So today marks the start of something new for me. I do out-loud bedtime reading with my three boys, and often don’t (with a few notable exceptions) write reviews for the books we read together. But I’ve decided I’m going to start. However, I also realize an adult’s review of a kid’s book has only a certain usefulness. So I’ve asked my kids if they’ll contribute to these reviews and they’ve reluctantly agreed. My older kids have wised up to me, and correctly suspect this is my att [...]

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? Exactly.An ideal situation, right? You could have anything you wanted, probably for as long as you lived. Sam of course being 11, star [...]

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, [...]

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 arewell, kind of uninteresting! 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 Ang [...]

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 het o [...]

Ok book=- I wish there were more consequences about the million wishes. I think Kate Messenger with Seven Wishes does a better job

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.Big Wish by Brandon RobshawI really enjoyed this juvenile fiction audio book. It is another take on wish granting stories that I remember from my own childhood (like in Aladdin). Sam, an 11-year-old boy and the main character, wishes upon a shooting star and receives a million wishes. Then Sam begins his wishing. He goes about wishing for fun, hilarious stuff like giant hamburgers, shrinking to the size of an ant, and creating his own pers [...]

Sam has been granted every child's dream, he wished on a metaphor for a million wishes and sure enough that wish came true. Now anything Sam wants is his. Most would think that you would run into no problems if you had a million wishes but sure enough Sam comes into multiple dilemmas throughout this story. *What would you do with a million wishes? *What is the first thing you would wish for?*Do you think you would use your wishes, like Sam did to help your friends and family? *Would you tell peo [...]

Really loved this and think kids will love it too! Original look at the idea of granting wishes. It took me back to the Queen's Nose show I used to watch as a child. I liked that the main character wasn't an angel and was quite selfish and self-involved, not your typical hero.
