“Looking for a fantastically fast-paced and funny read? Your wish is granted!” —Chris Grabenstein, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library
Twelve-year-old Ace’s life is about to change in the most unexpected and magical ways—all because of a peanut butter jar.
When he opens it, he inadvertently releases a genie named Ridge. Now a Wishmaker, Ace is given a week to complete a seemingly impossible quest, and if he fails the world will end in the most tragic (but cuddly) way imaginable.
Luckily, Ridge can help by granting Ace an unlimited number of wishes…as long as Ace is willing to accept the consequences. The bigger the wish, the greater the consequence. So, if Ace wants to avoid having pogo sticks for legs or his clothes turn invisible, he'll have to be careful what he wishes for and get a little creative.
Perfect for fans of Dan Gutman and Max Brallier, this new middle grade series by Tyler Whitesides (author of the Janitors series) is a wonderful mix of unpredictable magic, zany humor, and daring adventure. You’ll wish it never ends!

WARNING, contains spoilers! This book is about a foster kid named Ace who can't remember his past from before he was nine years old, and all he has left of it is an ace of hearts. He opens a genie jar and suddenly becomes a Wishmaker with a quest that if he fails, will end the world as we know it, but he can wish for help if he accepts a consequence. While working on his quest he meets a Wishmaker named Tina, whose mom is an ex-Wishmaker and is very sick because of all her consequences.
One of my favorite books this whole year. The Wishmakers is AMAZING. It's about Ace and Tina, with their genies Ridge and Vale trying to stop Thackary Anderthon and his son Jathon from getting to the Undiscovered Genie. However, at the end, Tina goes behind Ace's back... I can't wait to read the next book in the series!!
I'm a literature teacher and this book sounded really interesting, however it was to much imagination that it didn't make sense that much.
This book is fantastic! I really enjoyed reading it. It's so magical and crazy! I really want to Strat reading the 2nd part of it, can't wait!
I'm not really sure about this book... I love magic and I love the plot its just that it moves on to quickly. But overall great to read if you are bored!
