Barney Bipple doesn't heed Miss Merkle's suggestion concerning complicated wishes until it is almost too late.

This kind of story absolutely charms children. Barney Bipple's neighbor, Miss Minerva Merkle, gives him three magic dandelions as a reward for his return of a lost diamond. She cautions: "Stick to simple wishes." Barney immediately wishes he were eight instead of six; no one recognizes him. He wishes his dog could talk; Snoozer only complains about dog food. He wishes for a long, shiny yellow car, but the police pull him over and then his Mom doesn't even know him. A call to Miss Merkle helps Barney reverse his wishes and steers him toward less complicated magic. The book closes with glimpses of Barney's "simple wishes" for a bike, a baby brother, a frog or a pony. Kellogg's illustrations are humorously detailed and add just the right touch to a funny and thoroughly enjoyable book. Ages 5-9.
