Pedro lives in the village of Marbleville where his father works in the local marble mine. In an effort to re-discover where in the mine any marbles with special powers may be located, the owner of the mine allows each miner with children to take home two rocks they have mined that day. His hope is that the children will talk about any marbles that have found and so give away the location in which they were mined.
The rocks when broken open may or may not contain a marble. Some marbles have two coloured stripes, some three, and in the case of the marbles Pedro’s father has been bringing home four coloured stripes.
The finding of these “Special Marbles” as Pedro calls them, coincides with the arrival of his grandparents on their annual visit. When Pedro shows his grandmother his collection of marbles, she decides it is time to open some envelopes that were entrusted to her many years ago by the mother of the present mine owner.
Upon reading the letters, and following the instructions contained in them, Pedro and his family embark on some amazing journeys back in time.
With the powers contained in the marbles and with the help of some ‘unusual’ friends they meet on their journeys, they are able to help and rescue villagers who mysteriously vanished from Marbleville many years previous.
