What would you wish for if a genie granted you three wishes? Who hasnít dreamed of the possibilities? Well, nine-year-old Ali Miller is just about to discover how challenging this opportunity really is. When her ex-hippie grandmother gives Ali a garage-sale Lava lamp, sheís mostly interested in its retro factor. But when a pint-size genie emerges at Aliís first cleaning of the lamp, things get a lot more, well, "Groovy!" and "Out of sight!" The somewhat ditzy genie (circa 1964) has been stuck in the lamp for 40 years and is now raring to start granting wishes. Aliís mind, like so many fairy tale heroes before her, goes blank. And then, seeing the cute purple cartoon tiger on a chocolate advertisementÖ "I want a tiger," she blurts. The fun is only just beginning.
