Barnaby was not to know that the package he so proudly delivered to the headmaster of the local school was to hide an evil and cruel object whose power threatens to destroy the school and all its pupils. 

Will Barnaby be in time to prevent the disaster and has he learned enough from Mei Ling to survive??
