From the Publisher:
Josie Jenkins, aged eight and three-quarters, is good at tricks. She can balance a pencil on the end of her finger and pick her nose without anyone seeing. But she amazes everyoneÂ?even herselfÂ?with her best trick yet: Josie can lift a table, a car, and even a bus with no effort at all! Hold on, though. Could this would-be blessing turn out to be an even greater curse?
Then thereÂ's SamÂ?poor Sam! When his parents take off for a trip to the moon, Sam is imprisoned by the wicked Hilda Hardbottom. He must find a way to escape, but how? Could his salvation come in the form of a small, splotchy alien? MaybeÂ?if that alien has the power of invisibility, and the inclination to share!
In these two delightfully silly stories of extreme magic, enticingly packaged in a flip-book format, resourceful kids rely on their sense and savvy to save the day.
