Twelve-year-old Jasper Slater's life has been turned upside down. It all started with his father's plane crash. No survivors.
Now his mom is forcing their entire family to move to the middle of nowhere with his crazy Aunt Delilah.
The day they arrive at their new home, a haunted-looking mansion at the top of a desolate Idaho mountain, they discover their aunt is gone. If that isn't bad enough, Jasper starts to think their family isn't alone in the giant mansion. When he wakes to find his things missing, he knows something odd is going on.
The Fuzzwiggs have come to Earth to guard the Great Tree. None may cross through its gateways without permission from the Council. But some of them have shirked their responsibilities. After all, how can they be expected to concentrate when their farts have suddenly acquired mysterious powers? Naturally, they use them to prank each other and of course, take it too far. Some of the Fuzzwiggs want to teach the others a lesson, but that lesson turns out to have some very serious consequences.
