Oh, Timmy-I’ve been so worried -as usual. She was worried last night, she was worried this morning-she did a lot of worrying in those days inute I thought the impossible: that she recognized him. Her forehead and eyes pinched into a question. But then they smoothed out clear again. Sam, of course, was just standing there with that basset expression of pure dumb hopeless love. Things had to be joggled on. I rushed into the silence that was holding us all apart. Aunt Lucy, this is Mr. Bassinger.

The Genie of Sutton Place is a 1973 supernatural young adult novel by George Selden, who was most famous for The Cricket in Times Square. Sutton Place was Selden's second most popular novel after the Times Square series, but as it began to deal. Selden, who was bisexual, generally kept his personal life outside his works directed at youngsters.

Mar 02, 2011 Jason Byrne rated it it was amazing. Sadly my copy seems to have been lost, and I have been looking for a good copy for my own children. Find it hard to understand why this is seemingly out of print. It's a truly magical book, well-written, and engaging. While the plot ultimately revolves around magic, the story itself is a very grounded and touching one of a boy on the cusp of growing up who is at loose ends since the death of his father.

I’d seen Maurice a few times before, up in Aunt Lucy’s apartment in Sutton Place. The thing I remember most about him is his mouth.

This was one of my favorite books as a child and I was delighted to see it in electronic form. My old, old copy is very fragile and I didn't want to lose a copy of the book. It's about magic and love and coming of age and responsibility. A great book. I admit I bought it and I read it as soon as it downloaded to my Kindle, and I enjoyed it as much now (at 53!) as I did when I was a kid.

Just wanted to say that back in 1956 when I was 9 years old I had the great experience of watching the live television performance of 'The Genie of Sutton Place' on a program called Studio 1. The book was adapted from the TV play and both of them are very special to me. A great story!

I just re-read this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. Re-read? I found this gem at my local used book shop The Paperback Rack in Tallahassee. I'd recently read "The Cricket in Times Square" also by George Selden and was intrigued by the original cover art and the brief description on the back. I brought it home and started reading and began having a sensation of déjà vu. I'm thinking I read this in elementary school. The fact that I had a prescient sense about where the story was going only added to the magic and wonder of the story. Selden obviously loved New York City - it comes through on every page in every paragraph. Tim was a fine character - wise beyond his years because the majority of his time was spent with adults who treated him as an equal. His depth of knowledge, range of experience and use of language exceed others of his age. Many will complain that this is a contrivance on the part of Selden, but I was one of those kids and thus it rang true for me. The narrative is fast, funny and enormously entertaining. If you loved "Harriet the Spy" and "From the Mixed up Files of Mrs Basil E. Frankwiler," you'll love this too.

"The Genie of Sutton Place"
by George Selden
----------------------------------------
This is a lesser-known novel by George Selden, who wrote the beloved classic, "A Cricket In Times Square" (and its many sequels...) In this book, a young tweenage boy named Tim discovers the ancient secret to bring a genie to life, but finds that even having supernatural magic on your side doesn't necessarily solve all of life's troubles. This is a lovely, low-key story, which is best appreciated as a character study of the precocious boy as he narrates his tale -- the book was written in the early 1970s and provides a charming glimpse at the lighter, more innocent side of hippie-era nonconformism, as seen through the filter of New York society, circa 1973. The cast of kooky characters includes a fake (but optimistic) fortune-teller, an aspiring opera singer who works as a live-in maid, Tim's uptight rich aunt and her waspish attorney, and Tim's dog Sam, who is magically and enchantingly transformed into a human, in order to get him out of the dog pound. As with all Selden's books, the writing is delightfully well-crafted and the characters are subtle and surprisingly multi-faceted. Definitely recommended -- a forgotten gem from decades past.

this book is F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C. I highly reccomend to kids who love fantasy. I admit in the beginning i a'm a kid at saint ann's school and we wrote reviews about on a note card and the said:this book sucks etc.

so you get my point this book is FABULOUS for kids from ages 7-12.

your life will be better if you read it TRUST ME!!!
We found this book at the local library and my children would have passed it by. It had not been checked out for 24 years. They love this book and want their own copy.
