One thought on “Wishing Moon

  1. Nickie

    Wishing Moon is a happily never after retelling of Aladdin , which stuck out to me for a couple of reasons First, I liked the idea of redrawing some of the characters from the story Second, while I love fairy tale retelling, some of them have been run ragged How many Cinderella retellings are sitting at the library Dozens, I m sure So this one seemed to promise something fresh and a little different.In Wishing Moon , a poor orphan, Aminah, is out of money and out of options Her father had once b [...]

    5 things I wish I had known before starting Wishes on the moon This book is actually a duology Wishing Moon and Moon With Magic are the two titles It s not really a retelling of Aladdin, but of a sequel A continuation of the original story, if you like I was hoping to find the Princess Jasmine in here, but was disappointed Perhaps I should hunt down a copy of the original tale The characters were cardboard cutouts The detail given about the characters seemed to be there just to drive the plot, [...]

    Not really a re telling, but a story of what comes after the tale of Aladdin Amina is an orphan, living off the streets, and unfortunately starving as well When she decides to beg from the princess in the palace where her father worked, the haughty royal throws her husband s prized piece of junk at her not knowing that it is a lamp containing a genie Amina soon discovers her good fortune, but has to learn how to cope with the genie s tricky nature while avoiding the princess s desperate search A [...]


    In the book Wishing Moon the author does a good job creating a diverse and fresh plot the plot has many elements of suspense that will have the reader on the edge of there seat some suspense build up a the book goes, and other times it just pops up randomly I feel as the authors purpose has been fully achieved the author described the various elements of plot so well, that when you read the book, it feel like you re watching a movie in your head the introduction is not over done with full detail [...]

    In this thoroughly delightful tale, the beggar girl, Aminah, acquires the very lamp and jinni that changed the life of the fabled Aladdin This story takes many surprising twists and turns All the while the reader may entertain thoughts of what he or she would do should they find such a lamp Are Aminah s actions and choices believable, realistic, predictable The reader decides for him or herself There were a few editorial woops such as a word appearing twice in a sentence the first very unfortuna [...]

  7. Amy

    This book was fun and fluffy I enjoyed the idea of what happens after Aladdin and the lamp, a backstory for how the jinni came to be who he is, etc I think that the idea of the story deserves much though for example, some of the relationships need explanation especially Aladdin and the Princess , and the resolution to the chief problem i.e the villain who is trying to track down the lamp is just too easy and too sudden There should have been suspense, impending doom, sacrifice in my opinion [...]

    Did you ever wonder what happened after Aladdin was through with the lamp Here s how Michael O Tunnell envisions it He s my new favorite author Candy Bomber, Mailing May and now I discover that he wrote this book which I read this several years ago and remember so fondly I noticed it today looking for stories about generosity which this suits beautifully and think I m going to have to re read it this weekend.Later I did and it is just as charming as the first time Check it out Girl meets Genie a [...]

  11. Heather

    A retelling of the Aladdin story or what happens after Aladdin Cute The writing was at times disjointed, but the plot was interesting enough to make the book still worth reading.Aminah is an orphan living on the streets She appeals to the Princess Badr for work, and in her anger, Badr throws the unsightly lamp Aladdin s out the window straight into Aminah s lap Aminah makes friends with the jinni, finds friends, and a place for herself in the city, and looks for ways to make the world a better p [...]

  12. Shae

    This is the story of Aminah who procures Aladdin s magic lamp when it s mistakenly thrown at her for begging at the palace This story started slowly for me and I found the characters a little flat, but was pleasantly surprised when the second half of the story saw some growth in the characters and touched on some interesting themes of wealth and the moral use of power aka a genie s wish granting abilities The School Library Journal recommends this for grades 5 9 and I agree as there are light re [...]

  13. Emily Bates

    A clever and engaging tale of Aladdin s lamp post Aladdin Aminah is a strong main character whose flaws make her believable and whose attempts to overcome those flaws make her lovable The princess is wonderfully deplorable this is not Disney s Aladdin , and the Jinni is a delightful conundrum My one complaint is the love triangle conflict I am so absurdly fed up with those But in all other aspects, Wishing Moon both entertains and inspires with its stories of how just one act can change many liv [...]

  14. Tessa

    This is a middle grade novel fantasy It s set in the Middle East long ago and far away Aladdin s famous lamp falls into the hands of an orphan girl who learns how to use it to bless others Charming story Not flawless but very readable And the author s a local guy, which I thought was cool I enjoyed looking at how the author used the setting foreign but not too much so Magic and fantasy but still relatable The main character is strong but not too perfect.

  15. Jenny

    Aminah is a street beggar who was the daugher of a scholar of the sultan She goes to beg from the Princess Badr, wife of Aladdin Instead of compassion, Aminah is given a worthless lamp when Princes Badr throws it at her Now Aminah has a magic jinni to grant her three wishes a month Instead of only wishing for herself, Aminah s kind heart lets her help others Along the way she finds friends and family Now if she can only escape the revenge of Prncess Badr .

  16. Heather

    I enjoyed this continuation of the Aladdin s lamp story very much though I think that Tunnell s best writing came at the beginning of the book When Jinni did some very Jinni like thing in the middle of a chess game, I smiled and knew that this was a keeper The very last part of the ending was a little weird kind of like drinking a glass of orange juice after finishing dessert But this book ranks up pretty high on my list of YA fantasy reads.

  17. Katri

    This is a quick read juvenile fiction It is a story about what happens after Aladin gets the lamp and marries the princess The princess in this story is nothing like the Disney one It is a great read and well thought out It doesn t have the holes in logic in it that many fairy tales do A great book

  18. Ruth Hyland

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book A fun light read Perfect for any audience especially young teen girls Maybe I loved it so much because the writing was so much better than the selection series Think a female Aladdin but instead of trying to get the girl learns how to use her wishes to benefit those suffering around her and finds a family and love along the way.

  19. Jessica

    Again, here is another cute tail that I love to read This is the story of what happens to Aladdin s lamp after Aladdin moves into the palace Jasmin who isn t as sweet as the Disney version throws the lamp unknowingly to a beggar girl I really enjoyed the main characters growth and what she chooses to do with her wishes in the end Its a fun fairytale read.

  20. Sarah Campbell

    This was a really good book I liked the story line, and especially the ending I liked it because when you thought something was going to happen, something else happened This book was very clean, and had really good description The only thing that I didn t like was that my copy of the book had LOTS of typos In all, this was a great book

  21. Janet

    What happens to Aladdin s Lamp after Aladdin loses it This is the story of the beggar girl whose life is transformed The author is a big fan of Lloyd Alexander, and it shows here with a similar style Characters aren t very complex and the moral issues are a bit heavy handed, but there is plenty of humor and a fun adventure.

  22. Ji Mei

    This book was really good I liked the new version of Aladdin s story and the possibility of what could happen after he became a prince The characters are all interesting and mysterious, especially the jinni There was surprises in the plot that kept the story going and I can t wait for the next book.

  23. Meagan

    This book was written by my children s lit professor, which is cool It s actually why I read it in the first place I really enjoyed it though, and would definitely recommend it I had to read the sequel immediately.

  24. Kate McCartney

    Aladdin s is found by a poor beggar girl who with jinni s help gets riches and comfort from life She also uses the jinni to help others.This is a very good book, if you like the adventures of Aladdin pick this up.

  25. A.

    It was very satisfying to read this book, as it cleared up a lot of things from the second book that I didn t fully understand or appreciate I like the character of Aminah, and I like the portrayal of the genie Although I do feel bad for Aladdin.

  26. Ms.Scholl

    This is a great take on the Aladdin tale with lots of adventure and a nice magical twist The scrawny beggar girl from the street will win your heart and make you want to root for the good guys in this first book featuring Aladdins lamp and jinni.

  27. Annelisa

    I picked this book up at the library because it was written by my Children s Lit professor at BYU I thought I would give it a try I really enjoyed it It is light reading and a fun story I like the very ending of the story

  28. Valerie L

    I almost gave up on this book mostly skimmed the last 1 4 It had a good start, a different story, but then it just dragged Great potential, but the editors should have worked with it And how can you take the story of Aladin and his lamp and completely X him out

  29. Karen

    It took me awhile to get into this book At first Aminah was a bit annoying, though she did have redeemable qualities After awhile, I got pulled into the story I loved the various characters, and I really liked the direction the story went And the ending was perfect.Content Clean

  30. Briana

    What ever happened to the jinni after Aladdin got the princess This story tells of Aminah and her journey with the lamp as she struggles to survive while trying to change the world This book puts a new twist on the Aladdin story with an evil princess and a confused jinni.
