A quote - a wish


May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.


I love the language in this series. There are so many great quotes and lines in it. I mean, can you get more adorable than this sentence above is?! It is so full of hope, dreams and wishes for the future... I love it.

May it be true.

The first book in
"The Children of the Lamp"-series

I introduced my youngest brother to these books years ago when the first one came out. Today there are at least seven books in the series. I am missing a few of the latest ones, which I really ought to do something about - because we cannot have that, now, can we? A collector like myself, missing books in one of her series? No, certainly not. Not a chance. Must acquire. Obviously.

Now, I really did like reading these books. That is why I thought them fitting for my brother in the first place. Back then I always preferred to know the books I was giving him as he was so young. Nowadays I sometimes get him books I have not yet read myself, although I am still quite selective. It is fun when you see a book and straight away connects it with a person - the way you are certain he or she will love it. The look in their eyes when they see that book for the first time.

About the books:
The two main characters in the books are the twelve-year-old twins; John and Philippa. They all of a sudden find themselves as djinns with magic powers and the ability to grant wishes. Needless to say that their lives is about to change. In a world where there suddenly are other djinns - some good, some evil, ancient magic, old pharaohs, whirlwind travels around the globe, poisonous cobras and curses, they have to trust themselves, their friends and their newfound powers just to stay alive. Fighting for good can be a most scary task.
