Bobby Humblebeech's dad used to be a member of the Fantastic Society of Peculiar Adventurers. He used to go to exciting places and do and see interesting things. Then the society kicked him out. Now he just sits on the couch and watches TV. Bobby just wants to go out and have fun.

When Bobby runs into Dirk and Sam Straw, he might be in for more "fun" than he's ready for. The Straw's show him magical places that might not really exists. They only leave when they get scared away by an unidentified giant monster with tusks. The three run home to try and convince Mr. Humblebeech of what they've seen.

When Mr. Humblebeech is finally convinced, he gets so excited he actually leaves the couch! When he goes to the garage and actually lets the kids use his equipment, and wants to go see for himself, Bobby, Dirk and Sam know they're in for a real adventure.

This book is perfect for kids who grew up watching Power Rangers and similar shows. There are tons of high-tech gadgets and impressive pieces of equipment. Plus enough adventure, ghosts, and monsters to satisfy the most uninterested of children. ( )

Full of smart humor, magic, and real science, this adventure celebrates ingenuity, courage, and a strong father–son relationship. Bobby Humblebeach, son of an unemployed adventurer, thinks he lives in one of America's most boring towns. But when Bobby and two of his friends stumble across an Eye Pocket—an area of land caught between the past, present, and future—they discover hidden adventure in their own hometown. Abandoning his couch, Mr. Humblebeach outfits them all with the latest gear for exploring the world they've found. But when he excavates a mysterious gold chest, the explorers' mission into the unknown goes awry. This witty and action-packed story inspires young dreamers to look for the excitement beneath the surface.
