Pack your bags and leave boredom behind on a round trip tour of the imagination. This short story collection is an armchair adventurer's ticket to the familiar and strange, to laughter and tears, multiple surprises, and a good scare or two with a delightfully quirky cast of characters. Miss Pratt won't stay dead. Annie hates hamburgers enough to start a war but all John Henry wants is another plate of beans. Her doorknob talks to Rainy and Sandy talks to God. Danny's sorry he ever met Hurricane Charley. Ashley loses her head while Number One makes his father disappear. Ricky Lee is trouble and so are the tribbles although nobody believes the Jack in the Box clown is real. Uncle Jack's boss hates practical jokes, Mama wants to be a Rockette, and Jen tries Internet dating. Tara meets a guardian angel at the beach but Birdy Grace can't resist The Devil. Eliza meets a legendary Indian chief, Will fights a troll, and Jessie has to save the world with a lightning bug.
