Read in June, 2008

The first title of The Children of the Lamp series the story centers on Philippa and John, twelve year old twins. Unbeknown to the twins, the removal of their wisdom teeth is the beginning of their djinn (or genie) powers. The twins visit their Uncle Nimrod in London who reveals the secrets and mysteries of the djinn history and culture. The story’s plot is slow moving with a limited development of the young protagonist’s characters. The author has a good use of imagery, but often gives too many detailed descriptions of the settings, making the reader want to jump ahead a few paragraphs to reengage with the action of the story. The writing is well done, but the author often uses phrases that might be more worldly than the intended audience’s background knowledge.

Additional information about the series’s author and a book report study kit are available at the P.B.,

Recommended only for those who love all things Egyptian.
