While in the Australian desert, ant-sized Andrew, his cousin Judy, and Thudd the robot are carried away by a dust-devil and face many dangerous creatures, from a flock of wild parakeets to a Perenti lizard, as they try to make their way back to Uncle Al.
When an electric fish shrinks Andrew, Judy, and Thudd to the size of bacteria, they end up being injected by a mosquito into Uncle Al's bloodstream where they must battle germs, parasites, and white blood cells.
