Description

Bev's fridge won't stop complaining, her vase has a death wish, and she suspects her daughter has ADD. Chloe knows she is "A Dreadful Daughter," but the truth is more complicated than that. Chloe is magiken, meaning she can breathe life into objects...even if she can't always control them. She will soon turn fourteen. Growing up means losing one's powers. Even worse, she will lose all memories of those powers. Meanwhile, a painting is born on the wall of a dance studio. Feeling lonely and literally flat, he hops down from the wall and ventures into the dizzying, confounding world. The painting is close to starvation when he meets Chloe. Using her magic, she draws a pizza from rock, saving his life. He adopts the name "Timmy" and becomes her sidekick, of sorts. Events turn sinister when the Skizen, a creature of diabolical power, begins kidnapping young magiken. Chloe's magic is already leaking. Before she is drained of magic, Chloe and Timmy must save the children. Also...is it ethical to fall for a painting? With a touch of Douglas Adams' humour and a pinch of Pendleton Ward's wackiness, this book is an unanticipated trip into the unknown.show more
