A schoolgirl who didn’t wear socks became the idea for this story
Under Nelida Wellington’s stairs lives a Jinny-Yen. Only children can see such creatures. A Jinny-Yen is a Wish Granter and for most boys and girls, their thoughts turn to greed. But not all children are devoured by greed. Nelida Wellington, known as Smelly Nelly Welly, is one such child.
Nelly’s Grandma Mary has seen the Jinny-Yen and has an unfulfilled childhood dream. With her Grandma’s help, Smelly Nelly Welly must decide how to use her wish wisely.
