I read this in the advanced group for the fourth grade reading circles. I remember thinking the book looked kind of old and boring compared to what the other kids were reading, but I did enjoy it. It isn’t a book I’ve heard of as a classic I don’t think? It had some element of people making wishes, and I think the word wish might have been in the title but I’m not sure. I think the wishes might have been made through some sort of tickets that a man gave the kids? There were definitely consequences for making wishes and they didn’t turn out as intended. Please help if this sounds familiar!
