The Kazillion Wish is a fictional story about two young children. Their names are Harlan and Ainsley. These two siblings wish for a very difficult thing: a new wife for their recently divorced father.
In order to be granted this wish, Harlan and Ainsley must help the frongles and other mythical creatures keep the pace. During their quest, the siblings are led by a strange creature called a Bow. The Bow’s name is Zucchini Spacestation. He is a blue-skinned, long-eared “thing” that is something like a leprechaun. Together, the Bow and the siblings meet some strange characters.
Now for my opinion, I personally did not think that The Kazillion Wish was all that great. I think that the story could be more suspenseful. Everything is too predictable! The characters aren’t very believable. Even though they are fictional, the feats that Harlan and Ainsley attempt are very far fetched. One example is, at the end, they battle the “Fish Face” clan, an entire army of half human half fish organisms. An entire army against Harlan, Ainsley, and a few Bows! It is just so unreal it is stupid!
This story is probably interesting for elementary school students. I don’t think that anyone older than a sixth-grader would like the plot and overall story. If you like predictable, happy ending stories, I guess that this book is just for you. But personally, I don’t.
