Fiona (fondly called Fudge by family and friends) and her older sister Sarah are struggling to find a gift for their father's birthday. They stumble across a church rummage sale with a great variety of treasures. Fudge finds an old box with stars and moons decorating the outside. After purchasing it she opens it and finds a mysterious note inside. When she does what the note says, magic and mayhem follow. The box's resident genie isn't quite used to life in the 21st century so his magic doesn't always turn out right! A fun and easy-to-read beginning chapter book with quirky illustrations to add to the text.
