Jack and the Wish Factory: A ‘Beastly Bullies’ Children’s Book Collection Story: Out Now!

Jack and the Wish Factory: Another ‘Beastly Bullies’ Children’s Book Collection story is here!

Jack and the Wish Factory is out now and available on Amazon:

The newest story in the 'Beastly Bullies’ Children’s BookCollection', Jack and the Wish Factory tells the story of a boy who has never had a wish come true! For his twelfth birthday, he decides enough is enough and while his family cheer and sing the happy birthday song to him, he secretly wishes that if none of his wishes can come true, then nobody else’s will either!

However, Jack’s wish isn’t quite as secret as he thinks and it soon leads to him become involved in a titanic struggle between magical powers – in the end he must choose which side to take and risk facing the consequences...

For ages 7-12, or anybody else who’d like to read it! (14600 words)

Here’s an excerpt from Chapter Two:

I then heard a noise but before I could even open my eyes I felt something tugging at one of the sleeves of my pyjamas. I yelled ‘What?’ and leapt out of bed, frantically looking around the room. The curtains were open again, and this time so was the window!

I panicked. I was about to call for mum and dad when I felt something pulling at my sleeve once more. I waved my arms about, swinging them at whatever was doing it, and went for the light switch. But just as I did so, something began pulling at my leg too. I opened my mouth to scream as I was completely lifted off the floor and started floating towards the window.

I wanted to yell as loud as I could but nothing came out – I was too terrified to even make a sound! I desperately tried kicking my legs but it felt like they’d been tied up. Ah, I thought, it’s one of those weird dreams, like when you go to school without your pants on only to wake up still in bed, feeling somewhat relieved. So I waited to wake up but nothing was happening, other than me being pulled right out of my bedroom window!
