Recommended. I read it all the way through in one evening.

In short: Harry Potter meets the Arabian Nights. The main character is a girl, but boys play a strong role in this adventure as well.

The story starts out with Ruby, whose mother wants her to grow up to be a normal person, despite the fact that she has an obviously magic purse and gets mail from her mother by having the wind blow it to her. But red-headed Ruby isn’t cut out for a normal life (some people aren’t), and when her mother forbid

This is a very exciting adventure that all children will love. Jodie has the exquisite talent of creating a world that is real, but has the addition of fantasy fun. All children and adults alike will want to read this and then dream of flying across the globe on a magic carpet.

Ruby thinks she is an ordinary girl of 11 until she starts to question some funny things that happen around her house. Her mother, Ann, tells Ruby she is imagining things and of course the teapot runs out, but Ruby knows h

I found this book a week or two ago when I was cleaning out a draw which I hadn't touched for at least 2 or 3 years. In it I found this book, one that I now remember loving when I was about 11 or 12, but hadn't read since then. Reading it now brought back so many memories that I had completely forgotten, so for that, I'm very grateful of it.

I've decided to re-read this series as it was what really got me into reading and I'm in a reading slump at the moment, going on about 2 years now. Hmmph

I had this book sitting on my shelves for ages, but for some reason never read it. I'm actually very surprised that it received so many 5-star ratings, because I don't feel that way at all. Many times while reading, I got a bit lost. At times, the author is unclear of what is happening. I imagined the whole fight scene at the end to be set in the afternoon, but just after it finished, the author casually mentioned that the sun way only just rising. I did, however, really like the storyline.

This books is amazing. It drew me in right from the start and I couldn’t put it down until I had read it front to cover. I continue to come back to it when I want to escape the real world.
