When Henry Yewbeam is sent forward in time by his evil cousin, Zeke, his great-great-nephew, Charlie Bone, tries to help him escape from Bloor's Academy. Charlie also has to try to prevent his evil Grandma and aunts from killing his uncle Paton, and from destroying the balance between good and evil at Bloor's. To do so, he needs help from his friends at school, endowed and non-endowed, and from friends he's made in the city. He uses his ability to listen to people in photographs and portraits in order to receive help from a now-dead wizard named Skarpo, but as he's never actually entered a picture before, he's not sure if he can return.
