Publication Day for Eddy Stone and the Mean Genie’s Curse by Simon Cherry

Eddy Stone and the Mean Genie’s Curse  by Simon Cherry publishes in paperback today with Usborne.

When Eddy Stone accidentally releases a wizard from a cursed lamp, his town’s wishes start coming true and they can’t believe their good fortune.

But before long, the gift turns out to be a curse, and by the afternoon the peace of the town is in tatters.

It soon becomes clear that their wishes are being granted by a well-meaning but incompetent junior genie.

Tumbling into a land of genies, mad emperors and dancing camels, can Eddy put a stop to this wayward wishing?

The third book in the series, Eddy Stone and the Mean Genie’s Curse is a hilarious middle grade adventure, perfect for younger readers.

Find out what comedians Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry think of the series:

“Oh how I wish the wonderfully told adventures of this unforgettable pirate and the boy who befriends him had existed when I was young. I shall pretend I still am and read them again and again.” Stephen Fry

“A charming, surreal and batty trip into a world of Pythonesque Pirates, buried treasure and total silliness. Lovely.” Lenny Henry

Congratulations, Simon, on the publication of your uproariously funny, middle-grade caper!
