A mouthwatering new adventure to spice up the autumn from the creator of the bestselling Halibut Jackson. Nutmeg lives a very dull life with her old Uncle Nicodemus and Cousin Nesbitt. They eat nothing but cardboard for breakfast, string for lunch and sawdust for supper. Then one day she meets a genie who gives her a magic wooden spoon which not only conjures up all kinds of delicious food but also transforms the house into a ship, in which Nutmeg and her family sail off to new adventures! Praise for Halibut Jackson: - 'A charming book about overcoming shyness.' Observer - 'Delightfully satisfying.' Guardian - 'Instant classsic for once really does spring to mind... Original, clever and sophisticated.' Financial Times

This book begins, "There was always cardboard for breakfast." It actually gets weirder from there, but in a good way. Quirky and imaginative. Read full review
