"the same off the wall humor and mystery readers loved in book one"
He would go anywhere; do anything, to find her. Tarvik
finds the gate that Claire used to return to our world and
follows her. Without knowing of anything in our time, of
clocks, trucks or schools.
Claire and Nance are back in Seattle. Nance is learning to
read and Claire is teaching astrology at the Mudflat
Neighborhood Center. Two of Claire's students bring in a
soaking wet fellow in a woolen cape and a really nifty
sword. The lost (on both sides) has been found!
The story of Claire, Nance, Tarvik and the others continues
with the same off the wall humor and mystery that the first
part of this series brought us. The Decko brothers are
still trouble, Roger (the troll in Claire's basement)
becomes a friend and all seems well. Then a Mudflat family
disappears. Searches are made to no good end until the
three, plus Claire's cousin Jimmy, join together to find
them; each using their own skills in combination. The
villain is slain, the lost found and all seems well. Not.
