It is spring and Running River is in full flood. Tiptoes Lightly and Jeremy Mouse visit Greenleaf the Sailor, and they venture forth in Greenleaf's newly made boat. Soon they are joined by Pine Cone and Pepper Pot the Gnomes and together they search for the Lost Lagoon the frogs have been so beautifully singing about. Meanwhile, back home, Farmer John reads The Adams Tales to Tom Nutcracker and June Berry. Later, Tom rides off in the night until he, too, comes to the Lost Lagoon. What happens on this night, with its majestic, rising moon, is filled with a wonder and magic that won't soon be forgotten.

Review from the Midwest Book Review, January 2011: "The call of adventure can strike at any time. “The Lost Lagoon” is a charming story of the flood of Running River in spring, where Tiptoes, Jeremy, and Greenleaf embark on an adventure into the Lost Lagoon. They meet plenty of characters along the way, and make for a fun read for younger readers. With an assortment of illustrations spread throughout, “The Lost Lagoon” is a fun and recommended pick for younger readers."
