DoctorZed Publishing, 2013. ISBN 9780987345271.
(Age: 11+) Slave of the Lamp is the story of Rufus and his decision to get a job - the only way he will ever get his new computer! Rufus is hired by a genie to go back in time and  help out heroes from the past. This story brings characters such as Aladdin, Theseus (from Greek history) and Sinbad to life. During the school holidays, it is Rufus's job to help the heroes. They call him by rubbing the lamp. Rufus enjoys the adventures despite some of the dangers. Slave of the Lamp is descriptive and full of adventure. It would be enjoyed by girls and boys aged 11+ and is a great way for children to read about these classic characters as a boy from modern times helps them out.
