Squirt doesn't believe Bubba can dig a hole to China. But when the hole swallows them, the kids find themselves in Xi'an, China, surrounded by Terracotta Warriors.
          It gets worse when the ghost of the first emperor of China appears. He tells them they can't go home until they find his missing pi. The kids don't know where to begin until they meet a girl and her grandmother who promise to help find the pendant.
          Soon they realize they are being followed. And they are no closer to finding the missing pi. Will Bubba and Squirt ever make it back home?


Chapter 2 Squirt
We Got Flushed Down The Hole

Squirt here. I know, you're wondering what happened next. Well, I'm not going to tell you. Ha! Just kidding.
So, this is the part I was talking about. One minute, Bubba was digging, and the next minute, the earth was shaking. I didn't know what was going on. All I knew was he needed to get out of there. Fast. I raced over to help, but it was too late. The ground collapsed. Bubba disappeared. The last sounds I heard were his cries for help. 
I stood at the edge of the hole, screaming his name. The ground shook again. I lost my balance and fell in, head-first. It was a blur of brown as the ground rushed by. I tried to scream, but my voice caught in my throat. I didn't know which way was up. My heart pounded, drowning out the low, rumbling sound around me. It grew dark as I fell farther down the hole. Then, there was a flash. I was blinded by a spiraling circle of blue and white light. I couldn't do a thing to stop myself from falling into it.
As soon as I passed through, the rumbling stopped. It was quiet. As soon as I passed through, the rumbling stopped. It was quiet. I found myself flying through a tunnel of swirling blue walls that rippled like waves. I was traveling fast, but there was no rush of air against me. At the end, a white light greeted me. It sped by. Then everything went dark.
I fell to the ground with a thud. I lay there on my stomach. Terrified. Afraid to move. All I could hear was the sound of my heartbeat. My body ached. Dirt coated the inside of my mouth, leaving it dry and gritty. I coughed. Amazingly, I was still alive. I lifted my head and looked around, but I could barely see anything Maybe I was in the hole. Maybe I was somewhere else. I couldn't tell. A million questions went through my mind as I tried to figure out what had happened. 
Then I remembered. Bubba! What happened to Bubba?
"Bubba?" I called. Was he still alive?
No answer.
Still no answer. A tingly feeling crept down my neck. My hands got clammy, and I struggled to breathe. What if he was dead? We'd almost lost him two years ago when he fell through the ice. If Grandpa Joe hadn't been there to save him—
