Join the adventure. Break the curse. Find your way home. A magical new adventure from the bestselling author of THE IMPOSSIBLE BOY. Victor is skeptical when Walter Swizwit comes to the village of Rainwater. He`s the latest in a string of inventors passing through, and no one wants to buy his cheap magic tricks. But Walter doesn`t take rejection well, and puts a curse on the village. Only Victor is unaffected and he must leave Rainwater for the first time in his life if he`s to find the cure. Victor`s path takes him past other villages that Walter has damaged, and he picks up new companions on the way: Elena, handy with bow and arrow, Mo-Lan, a science prodigy, and scaredy-cat Mingus. It`s soon clear that they underestimated Walter`s power. Only he has the cure for his magic and he`s locked away in his castle a thousand leagues away. But he`s not the only inventor out there... If Victor and his friends can get someone more powerful on their side, maybe they can win: find Walter, break the curse and return as heroes. After all, there`s no place like home...
