Chase and his sister, Amelia stumble upon an old bottle of canola oil among the cobwebs and ancient Farmers Almanacs in their grandparents’ cramped attic. During a sibling scuffle the bottle falls, and through the hairline break, a genie emerges promising to grant the two four wishes.

Chase leaps at the chance to become the fastest runner in the world—but, of course, things don’t quite go as he wished. And that’s just the beginning. If Chase and Amelia want things to go back to normal, they’ll need to learn a quick lesson about sustainability.
