Waterstones Says

A bullied boy who is granted nine wishes embarks on a hilarious and heart-warming journey of discovery about the things that can really turn his life around in this joyous story from the bestselling author of The Boy Who Made Everyone Laugh.

A brilliantly funny wish-fulfilment story with a huge heart, from the author of one of 2021's most loved children's debuts, The Boy Who Made Everyone Laugh.

Archie Crumb is having a tough time. Picked-on at school, picked last for any team; his home has been sad and quiet since Dad left and his luck feels like its run out. But things start looking up when Archie bumps his head and literally sees stars: his favourite famous football player standing in front of him, granting him nine wishes. This is INCREDIBLE!

Unlimited ice cream, a whole day of eating pizza and playing on the X-Box, revenge on the bullies, becoming the star player in a televised football tournament: finally, all his dreams can come true! Will Archie wish his way to happiness? Or will he realise that magic wishes may be wonderful, but only he has the true power to change his life? Perfect for fans of Lisa Thompson, David Baddiel and Jacqueline Wilson. Funny, moving, inventive, uplifting children's fiction at its finest.
