The Boy Whose Wishes Came True

Helen Rutter

10 year old Archie Crumb is having a tough time. Picked-on at school,
picked last for any team, his dad has a new wife and little
daughter and not much time for Archie, and his mum is struggling.

But things start looking up when Archie comes off his bike, bumps
his head, and literally sees stars…

Latest reviews

It was a very inspirational and good book overall.

the main character, Archie, is my favorite character in this story as his favourite character, Lucas Bailey, grants him nine wishes. I would recommend this story to children who like to laugh a lot.

It repeated quite a lot of things in the book which was a little but annoying but still a good read.

I learnt a lot from this book although it took me a long time to read.

Archie is a little boy that needs to find out who he is is. Going throughout lots of changes he finally finds his happiness

This wonderful book taught me a lot of things and I liked it, although it took me a long time to read.

There was too many sad parts in this story.

It was great. If you like football I would recommend this book for you. Also if your lucky number is nine read it now! I loved all the wishes and how some of them backfired.

This book is about someone called Archie.

This book is above expectation I love it

I love It

This book is about a boy called Archie who thought he was rubbish at things but then when he was riding a bike ,he imagined he came to space and then he saw his fav football player in front him who grants him 9 wishes. He used 8 wishes but I did not know what he will do with the 9th one. Archie had a football show but his mother always stayed in bed and was getting better. She could not come to Archie's football match but Scadge and his dad came to the match. I liked the character Scadge, Julie and Mouse.

Very entertaining and made me laugh a lot. Loved it .


One of the best books I've ever read because it is so hard to grab you into a book and it was so strange at the start but then it was great at the end. 😱😱👍👍👏👏👏👏👏

I learn that when you make a wish and you do something good it will come true

I like this author so I reserved this book from the library. My favourite part was the cliffhanger at the end. It is about a poor boy who meets his football hero and he grants him nine wishes! I reccomend it if you like football or if you are age 9-12.

Wow 👌


I liked mouse.
