YA Fiction Stroud, J.

Recommended by Darren B. 

What you'd get if you crossed Harry potter with Aladdin’s Genie … One heck of a funny story! 

The djinni Bartimaeus is summoned by a young magician, Nathaniel, and sent off to steal the Amulet of Samarkand from the sinister Simon Lovelace. All sorts of trouble ensues.
