The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud

The Amulet of Samarkand I’m reading The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud. It is a great book that takes place in london. The book is told from two points of view, Nathanial and Bartimaus, Bartimaus is a genie and is very funny. I like this book because it has so much adventure and magic, and because it makes me laugh.
