It all started when Megan went back to the tree fort to get her glasses. That's when she saw something strange and that's when she heard a sound .. a grunting noise. Then she saw something that looked like a troop of monkeys leaping from roof to chimney to roof. She ran to get her binoculars and looked at up her neighbor's house. Yes, for sure there were six monkeys. Noah would know what to do. She ran to tell her brother but by the time he looked through the binoculars the monkeys were gone and he didn't believe a word she said.
A young girl has sneaked into a special exhibit at the Clarksville City Zoo. Fourteen red-eyed leaf frogs are jumping down a long corridor at the zoo but by the time they get to the special exhibit, the girl is gone leaving behind only three sheets of notebook paper. The girl, Megan, has disappeared
Now it's up to Noah, Ella and Richie, the Action Scouts. Noah has started receiving strange notes from animals and he knows that handwriting as well as he knows his own. These notes were written by Megan. Where is she? Is she alive?
Noah, Richie and Ella are about to wander into the world of the Secret Society, the Dark Lands and the man who walks in shadows. In this world you can ride on the back of a penguin, snuggle for warmth with a polar bear and watch penguins trying to learn to fly. The three Scouts are about to see things they never would have imagined and they are going to risk everything to enter a world where Megan just may be trapped and held prisoner.
