The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids

Genies.jpg (7185 bytes) #8.  Genies Don’t Ride Bicycles

Liza, Eddie, Melody, and Howie (the Bailey School kids) find something in the old oak tree.  They are disappointed when it turns out to be nothing more than a old bottle with nothing in it but a stinky smell.  Eddie tosses the bottle into the junky yard next to the school while Melody wishes someone would clean up the place.  The next morning the junky yard is magically clean and even decorated with Christmas lights.  They meet a big man with a shiny bald head.  He rides a purple bicycle and his muscles bulge under his gold brocade vest and bright, flowing orange pants.  He wears gold necklaces and one earring.  His name is Eugene and he is the one who has made the yard sparkle.  Suddenly, all their wishes start coming true with horrible results.  The kids are almost certain that Eugene is a genie.  The kids are disgusted with wishes and figure out that Liza is the only one with a wish left.  Can Liza bring life back to normal at Bailey School or will the genie win control of Bailey City???
