    So here is the title page for the Crankamacallit, our interactive children’s story

    The Crankamacallit Hangar is where it all happens! Inside is the “Cranka Works” inventor’s workshop, complete with interactive toolbenches, drafting equipment, windmill parts and a mysterious device called the “INFLATATRON”. I wonder what that does?

    The Crankamacallit workbench. Open the interactive toolbox and empty it by hanging all the tools up on the pegboard wall. And be careful with the grinder… Plus a few sound surprises in store as well!

    Obviously, any good Crankamacallit would need to use pretty advanced technology. Where do you suppose some of the Crankamacallit pieces and parts came from?

    You don’t think we can just build any old thing without a building permit? Let’s make it official, and get it stamped!

    A serious plan? Let’s “roll it out”!

    Like all good inventions, building the Crankamacallit required a “serious” plan! Here are some blueprints, and they develop some very special interactive features during the story.
