There's a genie in it


New Member
Hi. I read this book when I was 11 so I think it is young adult or scifi/fantasy. . .

This takes place in Persia I believe. A man (I think he was a beggar) is captured by a band of criminals who are going to kill him. Just as they are about to do it he grabs a bottle from the sand and tells them it contains a genie. The men are to scared to kill him and leave. Ironically the bottle actually does contain a genie.

I can't remember the title or author. Any help is appreciated.
