Alex Zwick never does what he is told. So when he finds a magic book, he just can’t stop making wishes – even after they go horribly wrong.

Will the book outsmart Alex and his friend Emily? Will its chillingly evil laughter ring out yet again in triumph?

Full of giant, venomous spiders, vengeful gnomes and themes from mythology, this is a scary but fun page-turner.
