What would you do with three wishes? When eleven-year-old Jason Reid is offered three wishes from an Elster of the Third Order called Quicksilver, he starts off greedy and frivolous, and his third wish is always for three more. Soon Jason realizes that Quicksilver is fading from the strain and that he must let him go. But Jason makes his last wish count: he saves the local baseball field and surrounding park from destruction. "[A] successful combination of the down-to-earth and the extraordinary that is the hallmark of good fantasy." (Canadian Book Review Annual) "First rate." (Mudpie Magazine) "[A] believable blend of realism and magic." (Boston Globe) "Accessible, well presented and boldly written." (The School Librarian)
