A new intermediate chapter book series for little girls who like magic and adventure, Little Genie is sure to be a hit. Ali and her grandma love to browse at flea markets and garage sales. Usually Ali is quite embarrassed by her grandmother's junky finds. That all changes when they find an original lava lamp from the 1960's! Ali takes it home and starts to give it a good cleaning. To her great surprise a tiny girl pops out in a pink cloud of smoke. Ali soon begins making her wishes, which is much harder than it sounds. There are many rules involved in wish-making and the results are not always what Ali wants. If only Little Genie had not been expelled from genie school then maybe her spells would not cause so many problems.
