Bestselling adult novelist Clive Cussler conjures up a hypnotic, charmingly nostalgic tale about a pair of ten-year-old twins who get their wish to explore the wide world beyond their parents’ California farm.
Ten-year-old twins Lacey and Casey Nicefolk live on a tiny herb farm in California, wishing they could see the world . . . but how, when times are so hard? That is where Sucoh Sucop comes in (you may notice his name is Hocus Pocus spelled backward).The mysterious man leaves the twins a magic box that can transform any toy into a life-sized reality. SoonCasey and Lacey, and their faithful hound Floopy, are soaring cross-country through the sky in the enchanted Vin Fiz, Casey?s model of a Wright Brothers biplane.Yet the ride is not a smooth one. The twins encounter danger after danger, and must rescue a town held captive by gold-hungry bandits, not to mention a runaway train full of terrified passengers!
In the tradition of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang comes an old-fashioned adventure full of magic and heroism that will take young readers on a journey not soon forgotten.
