The Imagination Box

Publisher: Faber & Faber

Review

When fate throws together a lonely youngster with a vivid imagination and an eccentric, yet brilliant, scientist, the result is a ‘thought-directed atomic construction device’ or, as Tim prefers to call it, an Imagination Box.

The amazing device can create anything Tim chooses to imagine but before he and his new friend, Professor Eisenstone, can explore its full potential, the professor mysteriously disappears. Suspecting foul play, Tim and the professor’s granddaughter turn detective but are thrown off course by a complex web of deceit that leads to life-threatening danger and unimaginable horror.

Exciting and lively plotting is cleverly suffused with subtle humour, a handful of super-villains and a bucketful of space-age gadgetry. Explores themes of friendship, loyalty and courage.
