One day, Harmony wakes up in an unfamiliar basement having completely lost her memory.

The best part of Christmas is getting to hear one of Uncle Paul's stories. This year, Uncle Paul treats the kids-and us-to the story of the real-life boy who inspired the beloved Spirou. It's 1929. Ptirou is a circus acrobat who, while the world's economy is crashing, sees his own world fall apart. Orphaned, and possessing only his skill, a bottle of perfume, and an inherited dream, Ptirou sets out for New York and new adventures. With saboteurs on one side, the lovely Juliette on the other, and his own knack for mischief, Ptirou finds adventure aboard an ocean liner before it's even left port.
Harmony now remembers the details of her previous life as the subject of scientific experiments aimed to control her telekinetic powers, and, though aware of the tremendous danger it poses, is determined to go back to the research center to get her friends out. All hell breaks loose as the children try to run from their heavily armed captors, and they must put their special abilities to the ultimate test to escape. But a couple of mysterious newcomers with equally strong special powers make an entrance, further complicating matters and raising more questions about the program and the people in it.
Life among the cavefolk isn't easy. Everything they do is gross, from eating raw meat to skipping showers. Thirteen year-old Frank, lost in their strange world and cut off easy pizza and other modern conveniences, tries to invent fire, but his good intentions might just blow up in his face. For one, smoke inhalation can be deadly. Who'd have thunk proper ventilation was so vital to cave living? Then there's that rival clan, plotting to develop a firearm... Throw in a tribe of bloodthirsty bunnies that kill with cuteness, and you've got another zany, zippy adventure in prehistoric times.
Poor Frank. It's hard being a kid in today's world, but it's even harder being the only kid from modern times stuck in prehistoric times. He knows everything, but no one ever listens: not even when he's absolutely sure the volcano they're living under is going to erupt any day now, dooming them all to a fiery death. And why would anyone listen? Lava is so convenient for cooking meat and providing central heating. Of course, that's the moment baby Gargoyle decides to go missing. The search turns up old frenemies and new misunderstandings in the conclusion to the first arc of Frank's adventures.
In a world where meat means survival, Frank can't seem to catch a break-or an animal. He just can't bring himself to kill a fellow creature. Just looking into a baby mammoth's big eyes is enough to turn him vegetarian. But while out looking for fruit to eat, he runs afoul of an old nemesis: the wily Leonard, who once stole his Swiss Army knife (and is still puzzling over it). Will Frank's new mammoth friend save him from Leonard's clutches? Will Leonard save them all from the common cold? And just why is their forbidden fruit forbidden?
