Ratminks running amok in the City of Ruins! Evil mutant crabs building giant robots! What was this post-human world coming to?
Thelonious Chipmunk and his friends face a whole new series of adventures after they reach the mysterious Mattakeunk Institute and discover...a time machine! Will the time machine lead them to the answers they seek? Perhaps some of the answers will come when the animals' traveling companion, Bill the Human, regains his ability to speak. However, there is one pressing need above all others -- the need to save their beloved Fog Mound from the Dragon Lady herself, and her evil ratmink assistants.
The enchanting Fog Mound trilogy comes to a satisfying conclusion with this installment, as readers finally learn the truth about the past of the humans and animals alike.
Susan Schade and Jon Buller, a husband-and-wife team, have
worked together on many previous books for children. Jon does the
illustrating and Susan writes the stories. For the Fog Mound trilogy, Jon
went back to what first sparked his interest in drawing -- comics. They
live in Lyme, Connecticut.
