When ten-year-old Tiger Brooks and his family move into a new home, he sees some strange things at the house next door like a talking pig in a top hat When he and his neighbor, Luna Lopez, investigate, they discover a reclusive old woman and her magical golden frame, through which they can enter the world's greatest paintings.
