Abstract:

When twelve-year-old twins Philippa and John discover that they are descended from a long line of djinn, their mother sends them away to their Uncle Nimrod, who takes them to Cairo where he starts to teach them about their extraordinary powers. From acclaimed thriller writer P.B. Kerr comes an exceptional, imaginative adventure trilogy about a twin boy and girl with magical powers. A one-armed chauffeur? + Twin djinn? + Three wishes? Qwertyuiop! What does it all add up to? An amazing and magical adventure, for sure (and that's not counting the Rottweilers, Alan and Neil, who are not exactly the pets they seem to be). Meet John and Philippa Gaunt, twelve-year-old twins who one day discover themselves to be descended from a long line of djinn. All of a sudden, they have the power to grant wishes, travel to extraordinary places (and not necessarily on public transportation), and make people and objects disappear. Luckily (and luck does have something to do with it), the twins are introduced to their eccentric djinn-Uncle Nimrod, who will teach them how to harness their newly found power. And not a moment too soon! Because John and Philippa are about to embark on a search to locate a monstrous-looking (but supposed-to-be-dead) Pharaoh named Akhenaten and his tomb which may be holding seventy lost djinn. Will the twins be strong and skilled and clever enough to outwit Iblis, the most evil djinn in the universe - and live to see another day - another city - another adventure? Library of Congress Summary. When twelve-year-old twins Philippa and John discover that they are descended from a long line of djinn, their mother sends them away to their Uncle Nimrod, who takes them to Cairo where he starts to teach them about their extraordinary powers.
