'The Thief of Always' by Clive BarkerRegina, who listens to WFSU in Florida, recommends this story for readers aged 10 and up, about a bored boy who gets granted a wish — and finds that it all might be too good to be true.
"I want to recommend Clive Barker's The Thief of Always. It is a short read with several digestable chapters and sketches done by the author. I read a chapter a day of this book with my children this summer. It is rich with fantasy and suspense. Imagine celebrating all your favorite holidays every day, and living parent-free: This concept even seduced my childen."
