I believe a good theme for this story is "Don't judge a book by it's cover." It applies good to the story because the other Djinn is very mean and plays pranks on people. Therefore, most people would think all Djinn's are mean. The main character is also a Djinn but he's nice and helps the man in town. Don't judge a book by it's cover applies to real life with all the racist and sexist people out there just because one white person does one thing don't mean the next is the same.
