Ten-year-old Tommy Williams and his dog, Nept, love to explore the lush woodlands they call home. The forest is their wonderland, filled with amazing animals and fantastic nooks and crannies and things to see. Usually, it is a peaceful place, but lately, something seems to be amiss. Odd lights and weird noises have been waking them up at night, and the animals have been behaving strangely, clearly upset about something.
Together, Tommy and Nept decide to get to the bottom of the mysterious happenings in the woodlands, but they aren’t sure if they are prepared for what they might encounter. There is danger in the air, and the two of them are about to embark on an adventure that will lead them not only deep into the forest, but far into outer space as well! In their wildest canine and boyhood dreams, neither could have ever imagined what they are about to find out, the truth about their world and worlds beyond and how all of it, in a unique and wonderful way, all links together!
