Have you ever wanted to be someone else? Or wished for something that you didn’t have? Normal Nina knows all about it. She is just a regular person that people don’t notice or appreciate for the regular things that she does. There’s certainly nothing fun about that. So, when Nina discovers a strange magic box outside her house and meets the bluemasked genie who lives there, she knows exactly what her three wishes will be. And there’s nothing normal about them at all! This delightful story for children ages 4-8 it shows that exciting adventures can be fun but being normal has its good points too.
