Ali Barbara finds a magical lamp complete with a genie! However, instead of granting Ali Barbara three wishes, this genie claims the genuine way it works is for the finder to grant the genie three wishes! Tasked with the seemingly impossible, Ali Barbara resorts to trickery to appease the genie. But when Ali Barbara’s conscience gets the best of her, the genie is moved to goodwill by her honesty and they both discover that good fortune comes to those who deserve it.

Ten-year-old Violet is determined to show the world, not to mention the cool kids at school, just how special she is. With the help of her assistant Freddy, she sets out to break a world record, but becomes accidentally extraordinary when she’s struck by lightning — twice — and gains control over all things electric. Under the name Miss Electricity, Violet zaps her way through circuits, bullies, and tests, but could lose everything when the power goes to her head.
