Tommy Tomkins and his friends continue their adventures as the series on the planet Borth continues. Starting with Tommy's Disastrous Day, Tommy Tale #32, and continuing through Tommy Tales #33, #34, and #35, Tommy and his friends have found themselves in all sorts of trouble -- from accidentally ending up on separate continents to being captured by mysterious creatures. In this story, Tommy and RK-5 team up with Aplixa and RK-9 to try and rescue their friends from the quishor cell and the other RK robots from the base of Oznox. Will their plan work? They won't have a chance to try if they can't manage to escape the net from which they are hanging upside down! Illustrations support the text.
