Description

Tom's parents have taken a research job on a idyllic Pacific Island. Sounds great ...but Tom's not enjoying it so much. That is, until he makes friends with Pero, who tells him of a strange tale regarding the Singing Caves. It seems that those who venture in, don't ever come back. In a fit of pique, Tom dares Pero to go in. He never really expects him to go but when he does, and disappears, Tom holds himself responsible. He decides he must go into the cave either to find Pero or face whatever the caves might bring. He could never imagine what he will find there ...which has nothing to do with the island - or Earth for that matter.
