  • Long ago, a little boy named Jack discovered a big green book hidden in a corner of the attic. He hoped that it was a storybook but it was something much better - a book of magic spells!
  • First Jack turned himself into an old man. Then he made himself disappear. And by the time he was ready to become Jack again, he had transformed his aunt and uncle into entirely different people.
