There are distinct benefits to hearing this audiobook read by its author. There’s no ambiguity about the mood, and the pacing is perfect, with pauses in all the right places. When Emma goes for a moonlit walk with her steadfast dog, Tristan, she finds a blue genie trapped in his bottle and releases him. Karim, however, cannot grant Emma the customary three wishes because an evil yellow genie has stolen his powerful and magical nose ring. Emma and Tristan join Karim on a magic carpet quest to retrieve the stolen ring. Cornelia Funke delivers straightforward humor and breathless suspense in a style usually reserved for older listeners. Her soft, low German-accented voice will captivate elementary-school listeners with its exotic air of adventure. L.T. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2014]
