On the evening eight-year old Toby opens the door to his latest babysitter, his normal world turns into a cockamamie nightmare.
And he’s the only one who can make things whole again.
Before the last star leaves the sky, he’ll have had a nasty run-in with the babysitter, some of his toys will have come to life, and he’ll have been sent off – most reluctantly – to rescue his parents.
Because they’ve been kidnapped.
With three companions, one a talking doll who always knows best, and the other two a curious couple joined at the hip by the map he needs to guide him, Toby braves the Petrified Forest, the manipulative Splendiferous Parrot, and two attempts on his life.
And who’s behind all this? The babysitter, who was never who she claimed to be.
Will Toby survive the journey and find his parents? Or will the evil woman disguised as his babysitter defeat him at the last minute?

…flawlessly executed…The story flows, and the characters are three-dimensional and consistent.
...exactly the kind of book my boys liked me to read to them when they were 5 to 8 years old, and it’s the just kind of book I loved to read when I was a kid.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tale, great descriptive writing, with lovely twists of occasional humour.
An animated storyline brimming with a generous splattering of dry humour and colorful characters…I read this tale with a seven-year-old who didn't want it to end.
