Ginger Spice gets a book deal.

For six -- count 'em! -- six books:

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, best known as Ginger Spice, has signed a six-book publishing deal with MacMillan Children's books. Halliwell's books center around a nine-year-old girl named Ugenia Lavendar who solves mysteries when she's not in school.

AP reports that Halliwell, 34, said the books will be somewhat like "'Alice in Wonderland' meets 'Raiders of the Lost Ark.'"
