4th grade reading circles wishes

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!

The Wish Giver by Bill Brittain? My fifth grade class read it and I played Rowena in our play. She wishes her traveling salesman sweetheart would "put down roots" and stay in town and he turns into a tree. All the wishes are granted in a literal manner.
