About the Author
"Kerr puts an ingenious spin on the enchanted-lamp theme in his first novel for children. . . ." --BOOKLIST
"A breakneck-paced, Indiana Jones-style adventure. . . . Kerr keeps the emphasis on fun...." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"[T]he humor is just right, the captivating world of the djinn is faultlessly depicted and expanded, and Kerr balances the resolution with enough uncertainties to draw readers back for the next installment. This work is likely to win new fans as well as please those who enjoyed the previous book." --VOICE OF YOUTH ADVOCATES
"Kerr brings a wealth of invention and a solid grounding of research into djinn legends to his creation, giving the story and its deftly varied episodes a rich texture. . . . Capable writing and a well-shaped plot will reward fans returning to this series." --THE HORN BOOK --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

We love it because it's interesting and educational. We found ourselves looking up factoids just to learn more about the topics.
This book however, feels like the author just phoned it in. Slow, boring with way too powerful villains. The twins really must have magic to even make it thru the poisonings, killings and mass of problems. Our Daughter got really bored halfway thru and didn't really get interested again until the very end. We'll keep reading but feel its' a bad sign for the series.
