Eleanor Tweedy, an eccentric inventor killed in a tragic accident in 1938, left her inventions behind in her childhood home. They are in the form of marbles, and were inspired by a mysterious marble game given to Eleanor as a child.
Now, an anxious raven and a grouchy, grey cat lead another child living in Eleanor’s home to two translating marbles, and from there to the Marble Board.
