Have you ever gone on a scavenger hunt?  You know, where you have a list of things to find.  When Oliver is sent on a scavenger hunt that promises to be the most difficult, puzzling, hilarious and dangerous ever devised, he doesn't know what to think.  Actually, he doesn't know what to think about his surroundings anyway.  He has been sent to spend the summer with his grandfather and his new wife.  What he finds is adventure and lots of magic.  Who would have thought his best friend would turn out to be a talking fountain pen?
