But in the short story, you learn more about the enchanted objects he filled with magic when he was a kid, including the hula hoop time machine, the jump rope of invisibility, and the lip gloss that sealed his sister’s lips shut so she couldn’t tattle on him!

It’s a free download pretty much everywhere!
