When he and his sister begin to play with these trinkets including a crystal cube that magnifies the unimaginable and a strange doll with removable organs that don t quite correspond to those of the human body their parents grow concerned. And they should be. For the items are changing the way the children think and perceive the world around them for better or worse.
