Description - Genie Us by Steve Cole
What would you wish for? 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. Soon they are diving into a world of weirdness and wonder, trouble and trickery, trying to make each other's wishes come true. But when the wishes start to go wrong the magic seems scarier. What is the secret of 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?

Author Biography - Steve Cole
Linda Chapman was born in 1969. Before before becoming a full-time writer in 1999, she had many jobs including being a teacher, stage manager, book-seller, university researcher and dog trainer. She has written over seventy books for children including the My Secret Unicorn, Stardust and Not Quite a Mermaid series. Linda lives in a village in Leicestershire with her family and two Bernese Mountain dogs. When she is not writing she spends her time looking afer her two young daughters, reading, putting on plays and horse riding. Born in 1971, Steve Cole spent a happy childhood in rural Bedfordshire being loud and aspiring to amuse. He liked books, and so went to the University of East Anglia to read more of them. Later on he started writing them too, with titles ranging from pre-school poetry to Young Adult thrillers (with more TV and film tie-ins than he cares to admit to along the way). In other careers he has been the editor of Noddy magazine, and an editor of fiction and nonfiction book titles for various publishers. He is the author of the hugely successful Astrosaurs, Cows in Action, Astrosaurs Academy and Slime Squad series.
