Jimmy McGee is a tiny leprechaun-like man who thinks of himself as nothing more than a plumber, even if he does do his job very quickly thanks to a certain magic he possesses called zoomie-zoomies. But Jimmy’s life of turning on water and fixing dripping faucets is disrupted when he rescues Amy’s doll, Little Lydia, from a monstrous wave that sweeps her off the beach. Jimmy keeps Little Lydia safe under his stovepipe hat, right on top of his magic box, where he keeps bolts of thunder and lightning—which causes Little Lydia to become electrified, out-of-control, bebop doll with the zoomie-zoomies. Can Jimmy find a way to restore Little Lydia to her original state as a “do-nothing doll” before he returns her to her rightful owner? Download and start listening now!

About the Author
Author Eleanor Estes

Eleanor Estes (1906–1988) grew up in West Haven, Connecticut, which she renamed Cranbury for her classic stories about the Moffat and Pye families. A children’s librarian for many years, she launched her writing career with the publication of The Moffats in 1941. Two of her outstanding books about the Moffats—Rufus M. and The Middle Moffat—were Newbery Honorees, as was her short novel The Hundred Dresses. She won the Newbery Medal for Ginger Pye.

About the Narrator

Jane Jacobs (1916–2006) was a writer and activist who championed new approaches to urban planning for more than forty years. Her 1961 treatise, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, became perhaps the most influential American text about the inner workings and failings of cities, inspiring generations of urban planners and activists. Her efforts to stop the building of downtown expressways and protect local neighborhoods invigorated community-based urban activism and helped end Parks Commissioner Robert Moses’ reign of power in New York City.
