Meet Grant the genie, and his best friend - the puppy, Teeny... The third in a series of magical adventures from the renowned illustrator, Steven Lenton, winner of Waterstones Picture Book of the Month and the Times Children's Book of the Week.
When Grant starts to miss his old life in Genie World, Teeny has a plan on how he can get the genie home for a flying visit. But as usual, where wishes are involved, nothing is quite that simple and they soon find out they're in for a rollercoaster of a ride!
Despite Genie and Teeny: The Wishing Well being the third adventure of Grant the genie and his best friend, Teeny the puppy, and it picking up where the previous one left off, it could easily be read as a stand-alone book.
When Grant starts to miss his old life in Genie World, Teeny has a plan on how he can get the genie home for a flying visit. Grant wants nothing more than to be back with his family in Genie World but the thing is Genie World, aka Wishaluzia, is an enormous distance away, high, high in the sky! How will he travel up through the sky@
It's not long before the Elastic Fantastic Flying Machine appears, first in Tilly's mind, then on paper, and finally, once they've assembled and fixed together all the items collected in the garden, there stands a rocket-shaped vehicle. But as usual, where wishes are involved, nothing is quite that simple and they soon find out they're in for a rollercoaster of a ride!
This wonderful story is jam packed with hilarious illustrations and laugh out loud moments throughout. It is a fantastic addition to the series and would be a wonderful class book, Guided Reading book or early chapter reading book. It is guaranteed to foster a love of reading and assist creative writing ideas, character development and a love of magic. Well done Steven, writing one fantastic story is difficult but to have written a series of three is outstanding. This series will be well loved in classrooms and school libraries as well as many homes.
