Before leaving on his next journey, Uncle Marco instructs his niece, Annie, to not open the boxes he has left behind. Yet, when curiosity gets the best of her, the opened boxes result in disaster as time-warping mutants are set free.
Annie's Uncle Marco goes on one of his mysterious trips, leaving her in charge of two sealed boxes on one condition: she must not open either one while he is away. But she is tempted...and soon she has unleashed the unspeakable. The creatures inside the box are crab-like and grotesque. And they possess a power Annie could never have imagined: the power to transmute time. "Sleator is the master of the creepy-crawly, and his inventiveness is at full power here." -The Horn Book
