Book Band: Gold Ideal for ages 6+

An amusing book about a bored little girl called Manju and a rather unsuccessful genie with a cold. This is a fun story with confusion created by the genie’s mishearing of wishes and the somewhat unusual outcomes. The humour of this is quite sophisticated, but the story can still be enjoyed, even if the humour needs to be explained, such as the genie’s mishearing of milk for silk. Although this is a fun story, the theme of kindness towards the genie and the elderly Mrs Cumin, was a nice touch and a good point for discussion.

The book is written in chapters which young children love as they feel they are reading ‘real books’ and as with all books in a range, I feel it is essential that the stories are not patronising. The books should be written for the reader’s ability and not the reader’s chronological age.
