In this humorous, ecological mystery, three unlikely
middle-school kids lead a protest to save endangered burrowing owls that
live on a site that is to be the future home of a Mother Paula's
All-American Pancake House.
Roy Eberhardt has arrived in Coconut Cove, Florida with a big chip on his
twelve-year-old shoulder. He misses the wild beauty of Montana and he's
found himself the new kid at school at the mercy of the despicable school
bully. Dana Matherson is everyone's fear, but at the very moment he mashes
Roy's face against the school-bus window, Roy notices a barefoot boy running
away from the school bus and across a field.
Life quickly gets interesting when Roy sees a young,
barefoot boy running away from the school bus one morning and when he
decides to investigate, his snooping lands him right in the middle of a full
blown ecological mystery. With some clever detective work and the help of
the eighth-grade civics class, Roy may help the mystery boy succeed in
saving an endangered species and beat corporate America.
