A timeless fantasy classic adventure packed full of winter magic. It is just before Christmas when Kay is given a magic box by an old man who runs the local Punch and Judy show. Kay soon discovers that the box has very remarkable powers; with it, he can travel in time and he can also shrink or grow in some quite alarming ways. When the old man goes missing, Kay and his friends need all the help they can get from the box to rescue him and to fight off the dark power of Abner Brown and his evil wolf gang. A thrilling sequel to The Midnight Folk.

What is the special box that the Punch and Judy man carries? Who is after it? And why are the wolves running? Full of charm, suspense and trickery.
