This extraordinary fantasy teams together two delightful characters: Varloo, from the secret underground Druid caves known as Hek, and Dougie, from the lands above this civilization, suburban California. These two unlikely heroes realize that a plan to build a development on the land above the caves must be stopped in order to preserve their existence. Luckily, Dougie's mom is an attorney who tries to keep the developers at bay for environmental reasons. Can they stop the construction and save the day before it's too late? Martha Freeman is the acclaimed author of several grade school novels. She has a knack for enticing readers into her wonderfully imagined worlds. Carine Montbertrand's engaging narration depicts the harrowing adventures facing this dynamic duo.
