Publisher Marketing: You are the lucky winner of a Blue Moon Once-in-a-Lifetime Adventure. It'll be the trip of a lifetime! The tour leaves from the Blue Moon office at 11 p.m. sharp. Groups of seven only. No pets.
When the Flints win the trip to Bell Hoot, they board Captain Bontoc's Blue Moon Mobile with the expectation of a grand holiday. Then something terrible happens: Bea Flint's little brother, Theo, disappears on the journey, and the peculiar Ledbetter clan of Bell Hoot, who call Theo the Hidden Boy, is more desperate than even Bea and her family to find him. Bea will have to trust herself and the weird and wise words of an old man called Arkadi in order to find Theo. In her search, she'll discover that Bell Hoot is more than a vacation destination, a wish is no good unless you give it legs, and Mumbo Jumbo is much more than nonsense--it's hidden potential that she can find within herself.
Jon Berkeley sends readers on the adventure of a lifetime with this first installment of a saga about a mysterious place called Bell Hoot, where strange and wonderful things happen.
