Synopsis

The Imagination Box: Beyond Infinity by Martyn Ford

Timothy Hart is getting used to the good life with his new Imagination Box. Anything he can imagine, he can create! There's only one rule - the Box mustn't leave Tim's room at the hotel where he lives. But Tim has never been good at following rules - especially when there's the opportunity to 'imagine' his homework into being without actually having to do it! Tim is feeling rather pleased with himself...Until he notices the strange people following him, and then chasing him, and then his beloved Imagination Box being ripped from his hands. He'll need the help of a Top Secret Scientific Institution if he's going to save the Imagination Box from corruption of the worst possible kind.

Reviews

'Here’s an entertaining, high-tech spin on the genie fable... The Imagination Box is children’s fiction in the classic mode, with double crosses, deceitful adults and narrow escapes all meshing into a solid mystery plot. Yet there’s a dark undercurrent too, and a timeless be-careful-what-you-wish-for message.' - James Lovegrove, Financial Times

'Exciting and lively plotting is cleverly suffused with subtle humour...' - BookTrust

'A hugely entertaining adventure with plenty of action, comedy and genuinely scary moments.' - We Love This Book

'Hilarious and extremely enjoyable. This comic story will appeal to both boys and girls and will definitely make readers laugh.' - Books for Keeps

'A splendid adventure, hilarious and harrowing in turn and so strongly cast that even the precocious pocket primate doesn’t steal the show.' - Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
