Summary

Now that Maeve Merrit has surrendered Mermeros, the djinni she found in a sardine can, she expects her life in London will be dull as dirt. Mermeros, however, has other plans. Maeve’s friend Tommy, a former orphan, has been adopted by Mermeros’s newest owner. When Tommy’s new father tries to use one of his wishes, he and Mermeros go missing - and without a guardian, Tommy will be forced back to the orphanage.

Maeve, Tommy, and their friend Alice embark on an adventure full of magic, danger, and flying carpetbags to rescue Tommy’s father and the djinni they’ve grown to love. But will they come to their rescue before Mermeros’ fabled wishes fall into the wrong hands?

Very enjoyable, with its heart in the right place

This was an enjoyable caper…me and my 9 yr old really enjoy spending time with these characters. The story is solid and full of adventure and the characters are believable and well written. A cosy read

Another new exciting adventure for Mave and Co

Loved the story from start to Finnish. Great that all the wonderful characters from previous book are here and we get to meet new ones who share the adventure. Exhilarating story told , its like you are there! (Jayne Entwistle does the book proud!)
A great adventure book for older children and adults.

Middle rating

The narrator had a very sharp voice for my hearing. The story was good as a background noise but not as a distraction. It was also a little too scary for my liking.
