The Genie Who Had Wishes of His Own: 21st-Century Fables

Why do genies in fairy tales and fables all over the world always offer us THREE MAGIC wishes? Why THREE? Why MAGIC? Why not 100? Why not ONE? E-mail Margaret Harmon your answer.

Fables are psychological power tools we use to become who we want to be. We each find our own fables--that help us escape fears or habits that limit us and that make OUR magic wishes come true. No one else can choose the fables that empower US.

In The Genie Who Had Wishes of His Own, twenty-two brand new heroes, heroines, and villains seek health, love, and fulfillment by 21st-century rules. Three very different genies offer magic wishes. We each choose the genie who works for us.
