Novel for ten to fourteen year olds
Bartimaeus the Ring of Solomon – Jonathan Stroud
Go back 3000 years to the age of Solomon, a time of mighty magicians and restless demons conspiring to get hold of the powerful ring. It’s left to Asmira a guard of the Queen of Sheba and Bartimaeus the witty but cynical djinn to stop them. Hugely entertaining.
