(From the publisher):
Ozzy will tell you--because Ozzy can talk as well as write--that the entire family is somewhat strange, but entirely lovable, and extremely talented. Ozzy can see what each member of the family is up to at any time, and knows all their secrets, thoughts, and feelings. It is Ozzy who records that Francesca, a delightful little girl of five, is able to start fires by stamping her foot, but only does so when she is very cross. She can also change the weather, which is quite useful when you're planning a day at the beach--or building a snowman in the summer. Nine-year-old Marco knows how to make himself invisible, and it was quite a problem when, as a toddler, he'd cause pitchers of milk to suddenly jump into the air and spill all over the floor. Then his mother, Rosie, thought to put a Band-Aid on Marco's back--just beyond his reach. Bianca, who is ten years old, can bring toys to life--a delight to all the children--but she doesn't stop at toys! The grown-up Fantoras are exceptionally gifted too. Grandmother Filomena knits patterns that show the future. Rosie makes magic potions for any occasion--and she can fly! Eddie, her husband, runs Fantora's Greengrocery and Florist's Shop, where he grows all manner of plants--including a tree fruit salad! He loves to chat with the cauliflower, laugh with the lettuce, or pass the time of day with a potato, which makes him seem a little eccentric to the rest of the family. All these unique talents make for hilarious daily happenings in the life of the Fabulous Fantoras. Happily for readers, Ozzy has carefully recorded every amazing detail. Otherwise, no one would know that there is really magic in this world...for all those who believe.
