Book Description

Sept. 1 2009
A picture book adventure of infinite possibilities! It's Jack's sixth birthday and he couldn't be more bored?! That's right, model airplanes, stuffed dinosaurs, not even a talking robot can break him free of his festering funk. What's a boy to do? Enter a most mysterious gift from the equally mysterious Uncle Doug. Within an ordinary-looking brown box glows the Think-a-ma-Jink, a bizarre contraption that claims to bend the very 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: cotton-candy breathing dragons, space-traveling hot-air balloons, caramel rivers and mountains built from chocolate sundaes. But when he and Marie engage in a boisterous, shape-shifting struggle, the future of the Think-a-ma-Jink hangs in the balance. Is Jack doomed to go back to being bored or is he on the verge of an even greater discovery?

My son and I found this book in Tumblebooks and we have read it every night for the last two weeks. Twice I have fallen asleep with my computer in my lap, luckily no damage to the computer but I'm not taking any chances
