A brilliantly entertaining 'be-careful-what-you-wish-for' tale that's full of farmyard fun - from the bestselling Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Anna Currey in her charming, classic style.

Old Macdonald is cleaning out his farmhouse kitchen when he comes across a dusty old teapot. And no one could be more surprised when a wish-granting genie pops out of the spout. Old Macdonald wishes for a wife, who wishes for a baby. A baby who wishes for a dog, who wishes for a cat, who wishes for some mice! It doesn't take long before the farmyard starts getting very busy, and VERY noisy! Will the genie ever get a break from granting wishes, and find some peace? If only there was someone who could grant him a wish . . .

The Teeny Weeny Genie is a magical picture book adventure packed with lots of favourite farmyard animals from Julia Donaldson and Anna Currey, creators of Rosie's Hat and One Ted Falls Out of Bed.

- Lancashire Evening Post and syndicates

'The Teeny Weeny Genie is a charming fresh take on the cautionary theme "be careful what you wish for". Children will absolutely love the connections to the beloved nursery rhyme, Old Macdonald had a farm. The rhyming passages and wacky wishes are hilarious and delightful! We loved it.'
- Picture Book Perfect

'It seems that Old MacDonald, by far the dominant agricultural presence in the children's songbook, is not satisfied with just having a farm full of livestock - it's a bit too much work for one man. What he'd really like is a wife to help him, so when he discovers a tiny wish-granting genie hiding in a teapot in a cupboard he's cleaning out, naturally his first request is for a Mrs MacDonald. Only she has her needs too - a baby, please. And baby wants a dog, who wants a cat, and on, and on - is there no end to this rural madness?'
