Galen's in trouble! He's disappeared into the evil land of Goll, and it's up to Eric, Julie, Neal, and Keeah to help him. The Wand of Urik is the powerful tool Galen needs. But the Wand's been missing for years. The only way to find it is by studying the powerful words of The Moon Scroll, an ancient chronicle of Droon history. Everyone knows that the Scroll holds mysterious secrets. And following its clues to the Wand of the Urik is sure to be cool. But no one has any idea just how exciting the journey will be-until the Moon Scroll leads them back through time!



















awesome. We actually did it. We found the wand!” Eric suddenly remembered everything that Galen had done with the wand. But more than that, it was this wand — this same wand! — that created the rainbow staircase itself! He stared at it. “Your magic can do anything!” Without thinking twice, Eric ran downstairs. He flung open his front door. Clutching the wand firmly in his hand, he marched right across the street. To Julie’s house. “I’m going to use it. I can’t use it. Yes I will! No I

The date pits, dropped by many birds for many years, had spilled out across the valley. Keeah jumped. “Nelag, you found it! The first valley must be there to trick people. This is the real Valley

of Pits! We aren’t too late to find the wand!” Without another word, the six friends slid, ran, and tumbled down to the valley below.

Julie made a face. “Such slimy pits. Could the lost palace of Ko really be under here? Eww —” “Often, things worth the most are hidden by things worth the least!” Nelag chuckled.

“Maybe it’s the door to the lost palace!” “And the way to the wand,” said Julie. More quickly than before, the six of them shoveled away the pits and the sand.
