Genie Us!

If you could wish for anything you wanted, what would YOU choose? When Milly, Michael, Jason and Jess move to a town in the middle of nowhere, the last thing they expect to find is a magic book – with its own talking bookworm called Skribble! The grumpy worm promises that the Genie Handbook can make them into genies in six easy steps. Before they know it, the four are diving into a world of weirdness, wonder, trouble and trickery, trying to make each other’s wishes come true. But it’s not long until the wishes start to go wrong and the magic begins to feel scary. Who are the mysterious couple watching from the shadows? Why is Skribble so afraid of them? And if the children’s greatest wish of all is finally granted, will their world change for better – or for worse?

    First I thought this will be the best book I ever read, however when I was about at the half of reading it, it got quite boring and ages to go through.
