Strange happenings in his neighbor's yard entice Cal onto his shed roof for observation but not before he finds the unusual in his own world. Not the least of this is a growlly stomached dog that, to Cal's ears only, speaks. The inseparable Cal and Frankie befriend the eccentric inventor next door and soon find themselves whisked into an experiment gone awry. Russell Boulter narrates with gusto, bringing each scene to life. The excitement of experiencing weightlessness is followed by the realization of its potential ramifications. Boulter's characters are distinct; he is gravelly voiced as the ever-babbling Frankie, boisterous as Mr. Frout, and pontificating as Cal's parents.
