    If imagination ran wild and whisked you away to some mystical, magical realm, you would have Mark Shupe’s debut novel. Full of whimsy and fancy, The Wish Doctor, with its imaginative descriptions, captivating characters, and colourful locations, grabs readers’ attention from the first chapter. An intricately-woven story that is sure to appeal to readers, young and old. Move over, Harry Potter: The Wish Doctor is here.

    "Hoy, hoy!” An action-packed adventure set in beautiful Baddeck at the School of Wish. Alma, Syd, and a host of magical characters bring this fantastical story to life—where wishes of every kind can come true, but with a cost if you're not careful. Shupe skilfully sprinkles humour, history, science and geography, along with the age-old adage: be careful what you wish for.
    Trena Christie-MacEachern. author of The Light of Day

    The young students at the Wish Doctor’s school seem predictable at first, but the magic of wishes soon turns their first year into one of ghosts, magical bears, and testing “whishkey.” Shupe has crafted an adventure tale suitable for adult readers, who can appreciate his use of language, but also for young adults, who will follow the romantic yearnings of the students. Be prepared for humour, surprises, and the power of wishes.
    James O. Weeks, author of Nodding’s People
