Picture of A Sudden Glow of Gold

A Sudden Glow of Gold

2000 edition. Illustrated by David Higham

Rubbing to edges and corners bumped.

Throw some things out?  No way!  Toby needed absolutely everything.  Well, maybe needed wasn't the right word.

But when Mum finally demands that he clears out his bedroom, Toby can't even remember why he'd wanted some things so badly.

Dusting off an old brass lamp, Toby releases a genie who helps him understand what wanting and needing really mean - or as the genie says:
'Riches, like camel dung, do no good until they're spread.'

By the winner of the Carnegie Medal and the Smarties Award, this is the final part in Anne Fine's genie trilogy which began with A Sudden Puff of Glittering Smoke and A Sudden Swirl of Icy Wind.
