Ed is a normal boy in the third grade. He has a normal family and normal friends. He lives in a normal town and he does normal things. Then one day he finds a bizarre coin in the grass. Suddenly his normal life is anything but normal. Everyone and everything around him starts acting stranger and stranger. As a desperate last resort Ed seeks the advice of Mr. Sage, owner of The New Curiosity Shop. Could it be possible that Ed himself is the cause of all the strange things happening around him? Can he do anything to stop the strangeness and return to normal? Does he even want to be normal again?
