Books Info:

Zackery Mackerel free pdf Maisie Gable is a very ordinary ten-year-old girl going about her very ordinary ten-year-old business. Being ten can be as perfect as rocky road ice-cream with extra chocolate sauce and marshmallows when you are reading magazines in your tree house or discussing your teenage heart-throb Cole Matthew's new hairdo with your best friend over a giant tub of jelly beans. But the ice-cream soon melts to mush when you have to stop watching said heart-throb in superb smouldering vampire form on the television and turn over to infantile cartoons yet again for your annoying little brother. Then the mush starts to congeal and turn sour in your stomach when you are being shouted at in front of the whole class by your mosquito of a teacher for doing nothing more than yawning. That is Maisie's life. Ordinary...until the day a bird chooses her as target practice to drop his sticky white package on. Tissue less and with a full afternoon at school looming, Maisie has few options. She spots a plant with enormous leaves that would be perfect to mop up the mess but, when she tugs it from the ground, she unearths more than she had bargained on. Buried beneath its roots is a teeny bottle containing Zachary Mackerel, a foul and cantankerous genie. Thirty centimetres tall, purple from fez-covered head to clog-clad feet and a stinking attitude that would rival Shrek's evil ogre uncle on his very meanest of days. Rude? Yes. Grumpy? Always. Pungent? Like no other smell on Earth, thank goodness. But his saving grace? He can still grant wishes. This magical opportunity sets off a chain of adventures with Maisie at the steering wheel and, sitting in the passenger seat with a bucket of purple popcorn to enjoy the spectacle, is Zachary Mackerel: Her very own Meanie in a Bottle.

About Kate Poels

Kate Poels was born in Honiton, Devon but moved to the beautiful Worcestershire countryside when she was only a few months old. Educated locally she grew up with a thirst for books and a love for children. Opting to pursue a career in the latter, Kate began training as a children's nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. During her training she was sent to work in a school for children with severe learning difficulties and decided that this was what she really wanted to do. With this in mind she changed her outlook and retrained as a primary school teacher at Reading University. Having thoroughly enjoyed several years of teaching she took a break to have her two daughters, Lily and Jemima. Now that Kate's girls are at school and she is only teaching part-time she has been gifted with a few spare hours to feed her writing addiction. Whenever she can she loves plugging herself into her laptop and headphones before losing herself in her fictional characters and their worlds. Kate's own real world is now centred round a semi in Reading where she lives with her husband, Will, growing daughters, and insane rescue dog, Pippi.
