Elliott is a boy who likes to find things and, one day, he stumbles across a machine. At first, he can’t work out what the machine is for – it doesn’t beep or buzz like all his other machines and it doesn’t have an ON/OFF button. Then, quite by accident, Elliott makes the machine work. How can he make magical stories without them? An inspiring, uplifting picture book about the simple joys of a typewriter in a world of hi-tech machines.
