Bumblyburg has been attacked by Ear Wacks--the diabolical plot of Alvin the Onion to interfere with the wisdom of being a good listener. Alvin is out to change the city and Larryboy forever. At first, Larryboy comes to the rescue, but then discards the real solution to the mystery. Then Junior Asparagus discovers the answers, but has to convince the adults to listen to him. Will anyone listen to a little kid. Eveyone is challenged with being a good listner as Larryboy becomes trapped in Alvin's awful plot. Who will save Bumblyburg? Will Larryboy's super-suction ears be saturated with evil for all time? Finally it takes everyone working together--and remembering to listen to what is right and good--to overcome this evil scheme.
