Wishes Come in Threes - Andy Jones
I'm thrilled to be part of the blogtour for the lovely 'Wishes Come in Threes' by Andy Jones, and that I have an extract of the book on my stop to share with you so that you can see for yourselves what a lovely story it is!

Mr Djinn is a firm believer in the power of wishing for the right things. He would be, since he claims to be a genie. Genie or not, Phyll is just pleased to have someone other than her journal with whom to share her thoughts and feelings. And she has a lot of those, what with Hilda the bully at summer camp, a stranger on the beach who seems very interested in other people's dogs and waiting, hoping, for her mum's sadness to lift. But as Phyll is about to learn, wishing hard enough, wishing well enough can bring its own magic...
