Ernie Banks, named for the legendary Chicago Cubs shortstop, is a troubled, 13-year-old juvenile delinquent. Abandoned on the doorstep of the Lakeside Home for Boys when he was three years old, his only proof that he once belonged to somebody is a vintage Ernie Banks baseball card, a crystal acorn he wears on a string around his neck, and a strange spiral birthmark on the bottom of his right foot.

As a last reprieve before being sent to a juvenile detention facility, Ernie is allowed to spend three weeks on a working farm. When Ernie arrives at the home of Russ Frazier, he learns that the widower's baby was kidnapped years before. Ernie is determined to solve the case. He teams up with Joey, a local tomboy, to investigate clues that lead them on a dangerous journey into a forbidden world of dark secrets, magic puddles, and the cavernous underground kingdom of the Puddlejumpers: eleven-inch-tall water creatures with whom Ernie has a mysterious connection.

    " Wasn't all that great. There are much better books out there with the same premise, for the same age group. "

    " A very original story. I loved the magic and the characters in this book. The only reason I don't give it five stars is because once again the kids don't go to the grown ups for help. Why is it that every children's book seems to follow this trend? Sometimes I'm concerned that this is teaching our kids the wrong message. "

    " Ernie Banks is a 13 year old juvenile delinquent who knows very little of his past. Jumping back 13 years, the reader finds out about Puddlejumpers, miniature people who jump through puddles to an underground fantasy world. A human baby is discovered to be their Rainmaker, but after preparing him for a life of being a Puddlejumper, their world is threatened by the evil Troggs and the baby escapes. The story moves quickly, but jumps around a lot, sometimes leaving the reader wondering when it will pick up certain threads of the story again. While younger readers may enjoy the book, the beautiful but sometimes slow-moving passages seem to be meant for more mature readers. "
