Bartimaeus, the irascible, cheeky, footnote-loving djinn, first made his appearance in Jonathan Stroud’s The Amulet of Samarkand, and subsequently went on to star in three other books in the series.
The story of Bartimaeus’ years with the young magician Nathanial (John Mandrake) and with Kitty Jones, variously enemy and ally, spans the first three books of the Bartimaeus sequence.
