“A Genie in a Jam is a Bildungsroman in the best sense of the word; it has to compare favorably with the finest young adult literature Bewildering Stories has ever published — or is likely to. And the reason is simple: the story does not preach, it allows readers to learn. Its conception reveals the personality of a good-hearted, compassionate teacher — with quite a sense of humour!”     Don Webb
