The Amazing Jazper, as he prefers to be called, is pretty proud of himselfwhile house-sitting for some evil moths, he reads their books of magic spells, and learns how to transmorph. He is now his own side show, and charges the other bugs in bugtown money to see him change into a crayon, a bubble, even a sour a pickle, all to great applause. But the moths are NOT amused, and decide they must rid themselves of the competition. What follows is a morph war that moves at breakneck speed--Jazper does his famous sour pickle, and the moths show up as knives. He turns into a nut, and the moths become nutcrackers. Can Jazper outwit the evil moths? Will he give up magic forever? Does water put out fire?

The trouble begins when Dad gets injured on the job, and Jazper sets out to make some money with a job house-sitting for ""five weird moths"" (they wear white robes and resemble samurai warriors).
