This looks like a good children's book:

The WishCaster and the Seventh Legion (Ben Mason - Book 1)
An adventure story for all children aged eight to eighty

Ben Mason is 12½ years old, he lives near Stevenage with his mum and dad and two younger sisters. He goes to a local Comprehensive school (Abbot's Grove); he likes sport, in particular cricket and badminton, unlike most children his age, however, he isn't overly keen on computer/video games much preferring to be outdoors playing, walking or riding his bike. He is a very ordinary boy from a very ordinary family apart from one very strange affliction: Ben suffers from a very rare genetic condition; he is, like his father and grandfather before him, a WishCaster.
There are times in his life when the symptoms of this illness steel over him: he gets a headache, he can't concentrate and he feels oddly detached from reality. These are the times when he does everything he can to avoid making a Wish... or even the merest thought of a Wish! Because for Ben, Wishes can come true and, despite what most people might think, this is not necessarily a good thing!
During a long and boring history lesson, Ben gets into trouble for not paying attention and has to stay back after class. As he is being told off though, Ben begins to feel ill. He recognises the symptoms and does his best not to think of anything, to let his mind go blank, but the teacher has a book open on his desk and Ben's eyes are drawn to the brightly coloured picture on display: it is of a Roman Century marching in precise columns across a verdant landscape; a blaze of silver, gold and red. Ben staggers and begins to fall; his teacher reaches out to catch him... and the world around them both, vanishes - despite his best efforts, Ben had made a Wish.
When Ben's teacher regains his senses he finds that both he and his pupil are dressed in the armour of Roman Legionaries and are marching amongst the Cohorts of the Seventh Legion during their first, ill-fated invasion of Britain in 55BC.
Convinced that he has lost his mind, or been stricken down by some sudden and debilitating illness; believing himself to be delusional and experiencing a psychotic hallucination, he refuses to accept the reality of their situation, and it is up to Ben, not only to keep his teacher safe, but to find a way of bringing this Wish to its natural conclusion. As the hours turn into days though, even Ben himself is beginning to doubt that they'll ever find their way back home.

Another mystery by Abigail Keam free today :)

Death By Bourbon 4 (Mystery & Women Sleuths)(Josiah Reynolds Mystery) (Josiah Reynolds Mysteries)
Life takes a dramatic turn for Josiah when she witnesses a death at an engagement party for Matt. Matt? Yes, Matt.

Charming socialite Addison DeWitt falls into a fit after taking a sip of bourbon. That would be upsetting enough, but Josiah is sure it is murder. However, no one will believe her except for Lady Elsmere and Meriah Caldwell, the famous mystery writer. The three of them conspire to bring the murderer to justice. It turns out the suspect is always three steps ahead of them.

To make matters worse, Josiah's daughter, Asa decides to move to London, Franklin leaves town and Jake starts singing a different tune. Josiah doubts her ability to meet the future alone. Maybe it's time to sell the Butterfly and move to Florida with the rest of the old folks.

xx

The House of Many Worlds Sam Merwin Jr

Strictly for the more elderly SF fans. The book dates from the 50s but it had a good reputation. I shall read it and see if it has stood the test of time.
