Forgotten Gem

This lesser-known title by George Selden, author of the much-loved The Cricket In Times Square, features a boy named Tim, who discovers the ancient secret to summoning a genie. Set in New York City and published in 1973, The Genie of Sutton Place is sophisticated, urbane and magical, with wonderful characters who are multi-faceted.  Selden carefully crafts an original and unique tale that is a quiet masterpiece of the late 20th century.
