From the Publisher

Bernie Bolton was only a few short days from turning ten when disaster struck!

As she babysat her stepbrother, Kirby, the worst possible thing happened. Worse even than getting Miss Boggs for fourth grade!

As Kirby climbed a tree, and tried to touch the sky from the very highest branch -- he fell!

Afterwards he was in a deep sleep the doctors called "a coma".

Bernie tried everything to wake him, from prayers, which she wasn't very good at, to intimidation, which she was, to loud Elvis music and peanut butter. Nothing worked, until Emmy suggested visiting Mr. Ralston. He was the oldest person in the neighborhood.

His house was old, and cluttered, and kind of creepy... and it smelled like fish, lots of old stinky fish. It was also full of cats...everywhere. But Mr. Ralston made wonderful cookies, and had a mysterious, secret box, which he opened for the girls after telling them a story from his childhood. A story filled with wonder and a little magic... the kind that might wake Kirby from his long sleep.
