Publisher's Summary

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.

Soon Casey 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. But 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!

Enchanting

A thoroughly enchanting story of every child's (and adult's) dream. Look forward to the next episode... 😊

My 7 year old LOVED it!

My 7 year old said that this was the best book he's ever heard and he can't wait to read Hotsy Totsy and discover what the twins do next.

Was ok

The story was read well, but lacked something. Not definitive there, just lacking and flat.

A fine adventure

As a 49 year old I'm hardly the target audience for this story. I'm a avid Clive Cussler reader, so i had to buy this audio book.
I was not disappointed with the story, for as usual the story moved along at a clip. Each adventure coming along one after another.
While some older readers may find the language fairly plain, it is ideal for younger listeners.

Very Early Cussler in his first kids book

Found this as part of the Cussler brand and bought as an insight to how C Cussler started his literary career. A good children's book but nothing outstanding. overall worth it for my 8 yr old
