This book focuses on the journey of Fone Bone and Smiley Bone. They travel to the mountains to return a baby Rat Creature back to his own kind. On the way, they are interrupted by Roque Ja (whose name the Bones mispronounce as “Rock Jaw”), a giant and enigmatic mountain lion. They spend the rest of their journey teamed up with a band of orphans to escape Rock Jaw. On this adventure Fone Bone and Smiley Bone also have to escape Kingdok. Notably, it is the only book in the series to not feature the characters of Phoney Bone, Thorn Harvestar, Gran’ma Ben, and Lucius Down.
