SCBWI Bookstop

The Genie LoopholeThe Genie Loophole written by Paul Maguire and illustrated by Karen B. Jones (me) is now up on the SCBWI Bookstop!  Check it out or browse other great SCBWI titles.

It’s a chapter book with one black and white image per chapter.  Go to my portfolio for a peek at the illustrations.

It’s currently available in paperback from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other booksellers.  It would make a great Christmas gift!

Synopsis:

It’s something that has crossed every kid’s mind…  If you were given three wishes, what would they be?  For Teddy Rogers, who one summer discovers a magic bottle on the beach and releases the genie inside, the answer is simple: Wish for a billion more wishes!

What follows is a series of unexpected situations, each crazier than the one before.  Teddy soon learns that unlimited wishes can easily spin out of control… and sometimes into dangerous territory!

Third Edition up on Amazon

Print
The new edition of The Squishy, Stinky Diaper is up on Amazon now.  It’s available in print and for the kindle and features all new illustrations.  I’m really proud of how it turned out.

Summary:
The story is familiar to every toddler. Baby’s diaper must be changed, but she doesn’t want to cooperate. With patience, love, and good humor, Mommy gets her through it.

I’m working on getting it up for the nook too, but their interface is being difficult.  It’s not on Barnes & Noble in print yet either, but it should be eventually.

In the meantime, if you want a PDF or epub copy for your non-kindle eReader, contact me and I’ll sell it to you directly.
