First Katie Price, aka Jordan, and now this. The Bookseller reports that former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell has struck a deal with Macmillan to write a series of books for children. The six-book series will be targeted at children aged five to eight, and is set to launch at the rate of one book a month from May 2008. Each story will centre around nine-year-old Ugenia Lavender, an “incredible kid who has heaps of attitude and brainwaves like bolts of lightning”, as she meets celebrities on her “contemporary” adventures. The advance was not disclosed but was for world rights. Halliwell will record a promotional song to accompany the series and will also read the audio editions.
