Book Description

Aug. 12 2009
It's Jack's sixth birthday and he couldn't be more... bored? Model airplanes, stuffed dinosaurs, and talking robots can't even break him out of his bad mood. Enter a mysterious gift from an equally mysterious Uncle Doug. Within an ordinary-looking brown box glows the Think-a-ma-jink, a bizarre contraption that claims to bend the laws of time and space. With this gadget, no idea is too fantastic to be realized, no world too distant to be visited, no personality too zany to be adopted. With his younger sister, Marie, at his side, Jack discovers a wild new universe of possibilities before him. But when he and Marie engage in a boisterous, shape-shifting struggle, the future of the Think-a-ma-jink hangs in the balance. This is a picture book about infinite possibilities -- a wonderful story of the power of imagination over even the fiercest rivals -- be they yetis and dragons or a little case of the blues. Age 4 and up.

Product Description

Review

Wonderfully expressive faces and busy illustrations will keep readers searching the scenes for more details.

My Think-a-ma-Jink will strike a chord with kids reconnecting with their imaginations.

The picture book explores the power of the imagination and how much fun it brings to one's life. It does this in a manner young children will appreciate and understand. The cheerful, colorful illustrations ably back up the imaginative text.

"Any parent of young children can relate to the magic of a cardboard box and the power of an unrestrained imagination."
