Barnes' kooky Aunt Lillian comes for a visit. Barnes' mom does not get along well with her younger sister. Lillian is working on a cream to reduce wrinkles, and it appears to work a little too well, for soon she looks 11 not 36. The Barnes decide to have an intervention after a week with a young Lillian. If Lillian wants to look 11, she will have
to act 11 - go to school, have a bed time, a limit on TV time. Soon she realizes she does not want to be a child again. Barnes turns to the Quarks to find a way to reverse the process.

These books originally published by Scholastic Canada between 1994 and 2004 have been re-released by Harper Collins Canada. Kenneth Oppel has created a fun series that will be enjoyed by young readers and the young at heart.
