The Maples are at it again! In this large, extended family of dolls, Dad just got a promotion at work. He's now the head of Special FX at his film studio. He brings home a huge pile of robotic animal parts which he allows his children to help him assemble, but he's then called away on business. Ten-year-old Jordan has a cool idea: mix up the body parts! And that's when the fun, and the trouble, begin.
"The extra effort that was put into setting up all the dolls and making the mix-ups created a completely original world."
--Jacob R., 10, Toronto
