The wicked city of Tarkoom is brought back to life by an earthquake, and with it comes sneaky bandits with a plan to upset present-day Droon. Eric, Neal, and Julie must travel back in time to put the city in its place. It won't be easy -- but the kids know someone who can help make Tarkoom history. Illustrations.
When Neal's dog Snorky slips into the magical closet, the kids have no choice but send him to Droon. It's a lucky thing they do, though, because a strange thing has just occurred in the land of Oobja. An earthquake has uncovered the remains of an ancient city called Tarkoom - and it's started to come back to life.
