The Genie of the Pepperpot

A Genie is in a pickle! He’s lonely and neglected — how can he turn his fortune around? He requests your child's help through personal letters and magical objects as he billows around having hilarious and extraordinary adventures. His story unfolds in five episodes of magical wishes and high jinks. Preview the Genie’s first letter here.

My son has been completely smitten with the story and has been polishing his genie lamp every single night before bed.

My son loved it! After his second one he kind of pulled me aside and asked quietly, "do you really think a genie is sending me these letters?" I love that my big 10 year old wanted to believe. Thank you for providing him with some magic!

My son ran — ran! — out to the mailbox to check for a letter from the genie. He was so excited to find his package. He loved it. ❤️

Our friend the Genie is leaving his neglected Lamp in search of a Vessel that gets more recognition. He has high expectations, so we’ll see what hilarity ensues when he finds himself with nowhere to stay but a Trash Can, or perhaps a lowly Cowry Shell. We’re confident that, wherever he lands, he’ll meet a host of charming, quirky, opinionated clients and there will be magic and wishes galore. The real question is, will our friend change his priorities and learn that what he really seeks has nothing to do with prestige and everything to do with his smoky old heart?

When one hears that a Genie is looking for a place to live, obviously one wants to be helpful. Here at Flying Trunk we tried to seize the opportunity, offering a rather fine inkwell as a suitable Dwelling Place. The Genie took the inkwell, but not (as it turns out) to live in. He borrowed a quill pen and is searching for a curious friend with whom to share his grand adventures. Perhaps you, dear reader, know of a suitable pen pal? We would love to put you in touch.
