The excitement begins when our two personalized characters discover a magic carpet and an egg that hatches into an amazing talking bird: the Phoenix, a helpful but amusingly egocentric creature who can't understand why everyone isn't worshipping its magnificence!
When the bird reveals that the magic carpet will grant them three wishes a day, the children launch themselves into many adventures throughout the world ... often ending up in unexpected predicaments! Their antics cause a stir wherever they go, but thanks to their wits and imagination, and with help from the Phoenix, the children overcome many challenges.
