    One Wish is a new prequel story for Michelle Harrison s Thirteen Treasures series so it s ideal for fans of the series or anyone who is new to this author This whole series has been incredibly fun to read and One Wish is no exception to that, it has all the magic and wonder you could hope for from a fairytale and is full of great characters and fun adventures.Tanya is a young girl with the second sight which allows her to see the fairies and other fae creatures This rare ability often gets her One Wish is a new prequel story for Michelle Harrison s Thirteen Treasures series so it s ideal for fans of the series or anyone who is new to this author This whole series has been incredibly fun to read and One Wish is no exception to that, it has all the magic and wonder you could hope for from a fairytale and is full of great characters and fun adventures.Tanya is a young girl with the second sight which allows her to see the fairies and other fae creatures This rare ability often gets her in trouble, the fairies don t like to be seen and they take great pleasure in tormenting her by causing mischief and because Tanya s mother can t see them it is always Tanya who gets the blame for the things they do Tanya is thrilled when she meets a young boy called Ratty and realises that he has the same ability as she does, not only can he see the fairies but he also has ways to protect himself against them and he s willing to teach them to Tanya When Ratty is kidnapped it is up to Tanya, along with Ratty s mischievous fairy guardian Turpin, to rescue him but that is going to be easier said than done.One Wish is an incredibly whimsical tale full of colourful characters My favourite would have to be Turpin, she s such a tricky little pest but her heart is in the right place and she would do anything to protect her Ratty I also really enjoyed the Wishing Tree who always speaks in rhyme Tanya is a fabulous main character and I ve enjoyed following all of her adventures

    What a lovely book, admittedly it s a y r but, sometimes it s great to read an easy book which just flows over you I ve never read any of this authors books before but I will readin the future I found its a bit like the Faraway Tree stories by Enid Blyton but, I also have enjoyed those over the years too.

    One Wish I loved this Michelle Harrison does middle grade fantasy so well I was really curious to see how a 13 Treasures prequel would go, given Tanya s limited understanding of fairies before the events of the trilogy But I was also excited because where the trilogy s sequels shifted focus to Red, I enjoyed Tanya s story in 13 Treasures the most and was keen to refocus on her I was not let down.Harrison found such a clever way to create a complete fairy story without compromising the premi One Wish I loved this Michelle Harrison does middle grade fantasy so well I was really curious to see how a 13 Treasures prequel would go, given Tanya s limited understanding of fairies before the events of the trilogy But I was also excited because where the trilogy s sequels shifted focus to Red, I enjoyed Tanya s story in 13 Treasures the most and was keen to refocus on her I was not let down.Harrison found such a clever way to create a complete fairy story without compromising the premise of the trilogy which it initially seemed One Wish would do And beyond just the premise, Harrison onceproves how talented she is at creating a solid plot, peopled with distinct and interesting characters, all the while continuing to expand the magical lore of the series All the little things really come together into a wonderful story And Harrison is so good at planting little clues and foreshadowing moments that even I, an adult, am surprised by I can t properly express how much One Wish impressed me I had expected to like it, but mostly read it to fully complete the series Lucky I did, because it s definitely my favourite of the lot This novel, and even the rest of the series, is a prime example of why I adore middle grade fantasy, and I m glad I got to experience this particular world once

    This book was alright It was bit intriguing, but it wasn t like I had to read it Something I really did like was how the story was rounded up It was like the prologue started and ended the book in a good way

    One Wish is a prequel of The 13 Treasures series which follows Tanya Fairchild who has the second sight Which means she can see fey The 13 Treasures were, in my opinion, very good books but One Wish disappointed greatly I found it very hard to get into and I failed to properly connect with the characters, apart from Turpin Ratty s guardian fairy I also found that Michelle Harrison s descriptive skills have gone down I found it difficult to create a picture in ny head of the characters and One Wish is a prequel of The 13 Treasures series which follows Tanya Fairchild who has the second sight Which means she can see fey The 13 Treasures were, in my opinion, very good books but One Wish disappointed greatly I found it very hard to get into and I failed to properly connect with the characters, apart from Turpin Ratty s guardian fairy I also found that Michelle Harrison s descriptive skills have gone down I found it difficult to create a picture in ny head of the characters and the places and that disappointed me When I did manage to create a mental image I found myself forgetting it quickly and having to re read parts, which is very unusual for me The reason I gave this four stars instead of three was because after all the faffing and frankly useless beginning I started to really enjoy the story I think the reason there was so much faffing was because I think Michelle Harrison was desperate to make One Wish as big as her other books but as I ve said before it would have benefited with a lot less pages Now the story Without giving any spoilers I thought that it was a very unique and, at times, exciting story In all my years of reading magic stories I ve never discovered a book that has such a unique and interesting storyline I thought that it didn t stick to many of the stereotypes already casting fairies and other such fey into a dark light All this was aided by all the back stories Turpin s, Ratty s, Son s, ect which I found was the best parts of the books I always love it when you get a glimpse into the past of other characters and hear stories told from another character Well, One Wish had plenty of this written superbly And this, in ny opinion, is what really makes the book worth reading

    Some people might think that stories about fairies are childish and silly and possibly inconsequential Not so, the fey of Michelle Harrisons 13 Treasures books They are dark and scary, tricksy and all too real With Michelle s last book, Unrest, it looked like she was turning her back on her younger readers for something that was sheer terror to the bravest of adults and all thebrilliant for it So when it was announced that her next book was to be a return to the 13 Treasures world for Some people might think that stories about fairies are childish and silly and possibly inconsequential Not so, the fey of Michelle Harrisons 13 Treasures books They are dark and scary, tricksy and all too real With Michelle s last book, Unrest, it looked like she was turning her back on her younger readers for something that was sheer terror to the bravest of adults and all thebrilliant for it So when it was announced that her next book was to be a return to the 13 Treasures world for younger readers and not just that but a prequel involving the story of Tanya younger than she was in the first, original, and award winning book from 2009, I really was wondering what to expect, and how this could possibly work This book is not just a story for younger readers, it is a story for readers of every age, and it doesn t hold back When Tanya Fairchild arrives in Spinney Wicket she can already see fairies, and she learns that she has the second sight so is not so surprised when she encounters the Wishing Tree who delights in speaking in rhyme and wordplay When she meets Ratty, she gets up in an adventure that is dark and dangerous and has lessons for us all about the importance of imagination, creativity, and the sense of self As I read this book, whilst understandably gripped by the story, I also found myself nodding to the genuine insight into how life is, and found myself wanting to quote this line, and that phrase A prequel to Tanya s story, yes, but an adventure that in no way could have been written first Oh, and it s also a book that might, just might, get children eating their Brussel sprouts

    Can t believe I accidentally deleted this In short, from what I can remember on the last review, I really enjoyed this prequel and the characters introduced It was nice seeing Tanya and her relationship with her mother givenscreen time Would definitely love to dive back into this world again.

    Five years ago, Moontrug s mum gave her a book to read, saying Apparently kids are raving about this one it s got bad tempered fairies in it so you re bound to love it And sure enough, in Michelle Harrison s 13 Treasures, Moontrug discovered a world of sinister fairies seen only by humans with the second sight and she was hooked Because the fairies weren t flittering Tinkerbells who sprinkle flying dust over innocent children, but petulant sprites who use devilish glamour and commit misch Five years ago, Moontrug s mum gave her a book to read, saying Apparently kids are raving about this one it s got bad tempered fairies in it so you re bound to love it And sure enough, in Michelle Harrison s 13 Treasures, Moontrug discovered a world of sinister fairies seen only by humans with the second sight and she was hooked Because the fairies weren t flittering Tinkerbells who sprinkle flying dust over innocent children, but petulant sprites who use devilish glamour and commit mischievous deeds And so when Moontrug s fabby publishers to be, Simon Schuster, said Michelle Harrison had written a prequel to the series, Moontrug leapt at the chance to review it.The Spinney Wicket Wishing Tree can grant your heart s desire just wish out loud, or hang a message from its branches It sounds as though the Wishing Tree is just a sweet old tradition, but Tanya is only too aware how real its magic could be Tanya can see fairies, and would love to meet someone else can see them too When she meets Ratty and his cheeky fairy, Turpin, it seems at last she s found them But Ratty has a secret, and a dangerous enemy who ll stop at nothing to get to him Tanya must use her one wish to save her new friend but wishes should be used wisely At the heart of the story is the Spinney Wicket Wishing Tree, adorned with colourful ribbons, strips of cloth and dozens of different shaped bottles filled with wishes The moment Moontrug read about it, the story came alive because let s face it, magical trees like JK Rowling s Whomping Willow and JRR Tolkien s Ents ROCK and Harrison s tree comes with a fabulous rhyming voice The magic that s rooted in Tanya s story is brilliantly mischievous, with tooth fairies who leave half chewed spat out toffees on pillows and sew children s into their clothes But Moontrug s absolute favourite had to be the glorious Turpin the Terrible She s laugh out loud funny, fabulously cheeky and underneath the glower, has a heart of gold Moontrug was chuckling out loud when Tanya bathed Turpin Turpin stuck out her bottom lip and folded her arms No Nope No way and when she crawled down the well with Tanya Did you just hit me with that torch Tanya exploded Shh, Turpin whispered Wasn t a hit anyway Just a little nudge But alongside Turpin Harrison gives us fairies who ve been forgotten, like the resentful Thingy, and malevolent creatures who lurk in the depths of rivers Moontrug s blood curdled at the description of Nessie Needleteeth Water gushed in through silver green teeth that jutted out in thin, spiteful spikes Its fat tongue sat like a bloated slug And the river chase scene, with Nessie Needleteeth and the strange girl creature, is brilliantly written it had Moontrug s heart pumping for pages The evil lurking in both Tanya s world and the fey world is frighteningly real and Moontrug loved that mixed up magicky places are on the fringes of our own world The imaginative scope is huge think spells involving a twist of a rainbow and seven dragon scales best performed by someone left handed, but, if not, then any time between Monday and Thursday One Wish is a fantastic read for 8 years, full of adventure, humour, danger and above all MAGIC
