Publisher's Summary

In this clever, funny, off-the-wall story, Uncle Borgel seems like an Old World refugee when he shows up at the Spellbounds' and moves into their back room with 32 small black suitcases. However, his true identity as an experienced time-and-space tourist is soon revealed when he takes young Melvin on an intergalactic road trip.

This is NOT a full book

Abridged is intended to mean that the story has been shortened but is still complete. This is only a part of the book.
I love Daniel Pinkwater and was looking forward to listening to his particular brand of whimsy, and then it stopped. Pinkwater is amazing but this is cheating.
