Description
When a young inventor named Ned realizes he doesn't have anything for show-and-tell, he whips up something unique from the odds and ends in his closet. The result is "Ned's Mix-Up Ray," a device that scrambles the letters in a word, changing the object into something else entirely. It's bad enough that he changes his AUNT into a TUNA and the PEAS and GRAPES at the local grocer's into APES with PAGERS. But when he uses the device on his classmates (BRIAN becomes a disembodied BRAIN and poor KRISTEN turns into a STINKER), he pushes things too far. Following a BUS ride, (well, a SUB ride, actually) and a disastrous field trip to an art museum, Ned realizes that he hasn't been kind. So putting his inventive mind to work, he comes up with an ingenious solution to fix all the trouble he's caused. From the off-kilter mind of Mike Reiss, author of the best-selling How Murray Saved Christmas and former writer for The Simpsons, comes this hilarious tale of a show-and-tell project gone waaaay out of control.

Mike Reiss' other TV writing credits include The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, It's Garry Shandling's Show, Alf, and The Critic, starring Jon Lovitz, which he co-created. His first book, How Murray Saved Christmas, received unanimous rave reviews.
