Krishanu Chatterjee Hello everybody.
I am new to goodreads. Could anyone please tell me about a book where the children in the story find a device ( a magical object ) and then do plenty of naughty things with that. For example : he gets a device which can freeze someone and then he uses it for a various naughty activities.Your help will be much appreciated.

Regards


message 3: by Nijole (new)

Nijole To Krishanu: The only thing I can think of is The Ogre Downstairs by Diana Wynne Jones, but the kids aren't very naughty.
