With nearly 2 million books in print, this Little Apple series is H-O-T, hot. The SECRET is out -- DROON is the series that kids, parents, and teachers are talking about!
Trapped! The Rainbow Stairs have disappeared, and Eric, Neal, and Julie are stranded in Droon with no way home. Even worse, Young Sparr and Gethwing have escaped to the Upper World! Eric and his friends have just 24 hours to restore the stairs -- but how?
The answers are at the end of a long, enchanted caravan that leads the kids all through Droon's past and present.

Isn’t that right … Julie?” She backed down the dune. “Oh, no. No, no, no, no. I was a beast before. I didn’t like it much. Huh-uh. No. And by the way? No.” “Julie,” said Keeah, “it is a good plan….” “I like Plan B better,” said Julie. Neal frowned. “Wait. There is no Plan B.” Julie slumped her shoulders. “But a
