Tommy Tomkins and his friends continue their adventures as the six-book series on the planet Borth comes to and end. Starting with Tommy's Disastrous Day, Tommy Tale #32, and continuing through Tommy Tale #36, Tommy and his friends have found themselves in all sorts of trouble-- from being accidentally transported to separate continents to being captured by mysterious creatures. In this story, Tommy and his friends team up with Aplixa to try and rescue all the RK robots from the quishor cell. They have to succeed because if the evil Oznox captures all eight robots, he could have enough power to control the universe! Illustrations support the text.
