Nathaniel is alone and friendless in his mentor's care until he decides he has taught himself enough to summon up a djinni (pronounced jee-nee, as Bartimaeus would indignantly correct you if you dared get it wrong) and suddenly his life is filled with trying to keep up with his disobedient djinni who's been around, as he'll point out many times in the course of the story, a good five and a half thousand years longer than Nathaniel.
