Wishful Thinking

Publisher: OUP

Review

When Abandinus, an ancient Celtic god, appears in a flurry of feathers on the backseat of the car, Kevin is understandably shocked! 

Abandinus, who it emerges is a centuries old river god, promises to make Kevin’s wishes come true, which is excellent news as Kevin has many, ranging from a desire for a new Wii to his divorced parent’s getting back together. At first having his own personal god seems very cool, especially as Kevin’s friends Tim and Gracie get involved too. However, Celtic gods turn out to be much more trouble than they first appear and Kevin’s wishes don’t turn out exactly as he planned...

This funny and engaging book from a Blue Peter Book Award-winning author holds plenty of appeal for boys and girls alike; the ending suggests a sequel is in the pipeline.
