Book overview: ‘Everything has a story,’ Lunden explained. ‘In fact, most things have many stories. In order to fix something properly, one needs to know more about it than simply what is broken. You need to know its story. It sounds strange, but to fix something, I mean really fix something, involves a lot more than mechanics or engineering. This toaster of yours has quite a lot to say, and, with a little fixing, quite a few more stories yet to gather.’ Taconic New York is a sleepy town. In fact, it’s practically dead. Tommy Jameson wonders what has happened to ‘his town.’ One day, an odd little man opens Ed’s Fix-It Shop. Ed Lunden, its mysterious owner, seems able to fix everything even a hopelessly cracked baseball bat is returned to its owner ‘better than new’ and fit for play. Can this strange man fix only things? Do his abilities extend to people and perhaps even the whole ‘broken’ town? Find out in The Fix-It Shop: A Story of Music, Magic, a Baseball Bat, and a Toaster.
