For his birthday, Calvins mother gives him two tickets to see Lomax the Magnificent (magician and hypnotist extraordinaire!). Even though Mama hints that his little sister, Trudy, would love to go, Calvin doesnt hesitate to invite his friend Rodney instead. The boys return home greatly impressed by the magicians performance. When Calvins mother goes out, she leaves him in charge of Trudy. Its a job Calvin dislikes because his sister does not want to be left out of anything. So Calvin and Rodney include her-by making her the first subject for their own hypnotizing machine. Much to the boys surprise, the machine works. But unfortunately they cannot undo what they have done. Trudy is stuck in her trance, convinced she is a dog-panting, drooling, and barking at squirrels. The only problem is, Calvin cant remember Lomaxs magic word-Probuditi!-so Trudy wont snap out of it! The boys are worried and decide to take Trudy to the one man they know can solve their problem-but will Lomax help them? Mama is on her way home . . . Who will have the last laugh?

Considered to be one of the foremost authors and illustrators of surrealistic fantasy for children, Chris Van Allsburg was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1949. He received his B. F. A. at the University of Michigan and his M. F. A. at the Rhode Island School of Design. He married Lisa Morrison and currently teaches at the Rhode Island School of Design. Van Allsburg's work is highly praised for the excellent artisanship of his illustrations, which often have a surreal element. His first book, The Garden of Abdul Gasazi (1979), concerning a lost dog found by a magician, and his second book, Jumanji (1981), about a strange board game that comes to life, brought him quick praise. Jumanji won the Caldecott Medal in 1982. The Polar Express (1985), Van Allsburg's most popular book, deals with the idea that the ability to believe in things beyond one's experiences helps to keep a person young. It also won a Caldecott Medal in 1986. Other books by Van Allsburg include The Z was Zapped, and Just a Dream, a story about a boy who learns to be ecological. Van Allsburg's sculptures have also been exhibited at many New York galleries.
