The Imagination Box Synopsis

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.

The Imagination Box Press 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
