Set in Australia, 9 year old Jenny lived in a small seaside town of Coogee Beach. While playing on the beach she trips over a beautiful vase. Not knowing it is the Great Vase of Ra, Jenny takes the vase home to surprise her mum, but instead Jenny is the one who gets surprised when she discovers a little girl Genie named Futuna stuck inside. While Jenny is still thinking there is "No Such Thing As A Genie," Futuna tearfully explains the story of how she fell into the vase while playing in the Great Pyramid of Khufu. Futuna tells Jenny that the Great Celebration Ceremony occurs every thousand year when the Drugon Star aligns with the Great Pyramid. Even if only one Genie is missing the ceremony cannot take place and all the Genies will lose the powers. Meanwhile, King Farook, the King of the Genies, decrees that all Genies search for Futuna. Jenny is determined to help Futuna get to the Great Celebration Ceremony in time. Can the Genies find Futuna or will they lose their powers?
After reading the info on this New Book online,
I just had to buy it for my little girl who's 8.
She loves all that fairy,genie, magic stuff.
I thought I would just read the first 2 chapters, but could not put the book down.
It holds your interest all the way through the book.
Which is pretty amazing for a kids book.
It has some pretty cool facts in the book, I actually looked them up.
Hope Book 2 will be out soon.
My little girl keeps asking for it.

A Babysitter's Dream !!!!!!
Great book!! I'm originally from Randwick, a suburb in Sydney Australia which is right next to Coogee Beach - the setting for the book. I read this book to my little sister and brother and they were as quiet as a mouse listening to the adventures of Jenny and her little Genie friend Futuna. It really made babysitting a whole lot easier. Thank you authors. Hurry with Book 2, I need more babysitting tools. Thanks again.

New and Refreshing !!!!!!!
My kids love this book! It's full of fun and fantasy. Australia & Genies, what a unique combination!
I love the fact that they learn from the book as well. We all love fairytales but we've heard them all before. This one is new and refreshing and I'm sure will become as timeless as well. We are really looking forward to reading Book 2 :-)

GREAT READ FUN FUN FUN!
New Book, read to my Library Kids, ages 6-12, last week.
They loved it. Usually my kids will only sit still for 5 minutes, but they sat there for almost half an hour.
Wow! I was surprised, this book is so interesting
and funny and there's excitement on every page, it really did capture their attention.
Its set in Australia, Coogee Beach and it also has facts about Australia, so
my kids did learn something new too.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good book the read to children and also for reading level 1.

No such thing as a Genie
This new book is very exciting and quite interesting for a children's book.
It really keeps your interest all the way through, on every page.
Children 7-12 will love to read it and so will the adults.
The book moves quickly, so never a dull moment.
I think it is going to be very popular with everyone.
It's also fun to read and has good morals.
Looking forward to the next Book in The My Genie and Me Series.
