Publisher Comments:

A sparkling new adventure from the creator of the best-selling 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. One day she meets a genie who gives her a magic wooden spoon that not only conjures up all kinds of ingredients, and cooks all by itself, but also transforms their ramshackle old hut into a ship. So Nutmeg and her family sail off to new adventures!

About the Author
