Synopsis

When 11-year-old Teddy Thompson tries to speak, the words seem to escape him; literally. Known as the mute with the broken chute by the other kids in the playground, it will require someone or something incredibly special to help this quiet orphaned boy rediscover his voice. Nothing short of a miracle could free Teddy from the clutches of the sinister headmaster, Hilda Hagmire and the life of isolation and abandonment he had experienced at the state orphanage.

Enter Professor Perley I. Peepers, part inventor, part scatterbrained professor, and Teddy’s long lost uncle, who unexpectedly rescues him and immerses him into a world replete with magical Chatter Bugs, Togo Sticks, Hopcycles and Sound Scratchers! Although these gadgets seem as nutty as Peepers himself, don’t tell that to a young boy desperately trying to discover his place in this world. With the help of a Slow Loris (Togo) and some carefully placed ingenuity, Professor Peepers may have finally realized his discovery of a lifetime – and now in Teddy Thompson – he may have found the perfect beneficiary!
