Best-selling author Ian Whybrow and acclaimed illustrator Paul Howard join forces to create a magical picture book about every child's dream -- to step into an imaginary, miniature world. Art doesn't feel very well and isn't even interested in playing with the farm inside a shoebox that once belonged to his dad. But suddenly, the shoebox lid lifts up...all by itself...and out climbs Hoofer the toy horse! Hoofer needs Art to bring his toolkit and help fix Red, the tractor. With a little bit of magic, Art soon finds himself shrinking, and shrinking, until he is small enough to climb inside the shoebox to take part in the most wonderful adventure. And, after some farmyard fixing, Art finds that he is also beginning to feel on the mend!
