Imagination Box (Faber & Faber – Paperback)

There is a box. Anything you imagine will appear inside. You have one go, one chance to create anything you want. What would you pick?

That’s exactly the question ten-year-old Timothy Hart gets to answer after discovering The Imagination Box. The greatest toy on earth.  The top-secret contraption transforms his life but when the box’s inventor, Professor Eisenstone, goes missing, Tim knows he has to investigate.  With the help of a talking finger monkey called Phil, he sets out to find the professor. In order to rescue his friend, he must face his darkest fears and discover the true potential of his own mind.  This stunning debut is first in an exciting new trilogy for readers aged 9y+.
