      There's a mystery woman in Polaris county, and she teaches the seventh grade! Miss Penelope Quagmire's past is shrouded in secrecy. The principal who hired her left town, suddenly. The file cabinet containing all records of her past was destroyed in a mysterious fire. And three of Miss Quagmire's students have discovered that she has a very strange habit!

    Whenever there's a full moon, Miss Quagmire sits in her attic window, staring through a telescope. She never moves, and never leaves her window. All night long, she stares through her high powered lens. Watching. Waiting.

    What is she waiting for? And why does she have a hidden room in her house with a secret transmitter?

    Seventh graders Ozzie, Orlando, and Anissa are determined to uncover the truth. One moonlight night their pursuit of Miss Quagmire's secret leads them to a deserted field and to the discovery of a lifetime! Soon, they find themselves in a desperate struggle on an unknown world—a world where dinosaurs still roam, and lizard-like pirates threaten a secret, underground kingdom.

    Will the children survive their voyage to the dinosaur planet? Will they find their way back home again? And will they ever discover the secret of..."Penelope Quagmire and the Lizard Men from Outer Space"??!!!
