      'World explorer Augustus Skinner has died! Now, his three young teen grandsons have inherited the big, old Skinner Mansion and its contents. But Grandfather Skinner also left them a big surprise… the Skinner Boys are now Guardians of the Lost Secrets… a collection of unique artefacts across the world that possess incredible powers.

      'An even bigger surprise is in store! Grandpa Skinner also appointed a fourth Guardian a long lost cousin, the feisty teenage Tara. And as these boys know almost nothing about girls – she’s probably their biggest challenge of all. And vice-versa. As the anonymous Guardians of these artefacts, Tara and the boys must dedicate their lives to protecting them against the forces of evil that would corrupt their powers and endanger the planet. In the wrong hands, the fabled Skull of Medusa could turn a whole army to stone. The legendary philosopher’s stone, which turns any metal into gold, could make its owner wealthy and powerful beyond belief. This is the legacy of Grandpa Skinner.

      'But these unsuspecting kids have a secret weapon – their youth. Nobody would ever guess that four goof-ball teens would be capable of outsmarting the powerfully evil Shadow League and protecting the world.

      'It’s like handing the keys to the world to an erratic teenager. Times four.'
