Lizzy Rhinehart's father is a famous environmentalist; now his seaplane has crashed, and he is lost in the Florida Everglades. Local sheriffs and Marine Patrol Officers have no leads, and a terrible storm is on its way. It is up to Lizzy to rescue him, and, with the help of four magic trouble dolls, she and her dog, Spooner, set off on a dangerous mission to save his life.
Guatemalan trouble dolls, or worry dolls, have long been used by people of all ages. Legend has it that if you tell these tiny dolls your problems and then put them under your pillow, they will solve those problems while you sleep. A favorite of children in Guatemala, these dolls are becoming popular throughout the United States.
