In this book, more of Tyco Bass' history is revealed when he takes the boys to his home town in Wales and discovers that the wondrous necklace of Ta, the ruler of the Mushroom Planet, has been stolen along with an ancient Mycetian scroll. The thief was under compulsion by the power of the necklace and in an amusing series of events, Tyco and the boys track down the stones which have been removed from the necklace and sold to different people who have become obsessed with Mycetian styles: a doctor using mushrooms as medicine, an architect designing a frilled beehive-shaped church, an artist sculpting mushroom people as druids, and a fashion designer creating raincoats as formal wear. The people return to normal and Tyco and the boys return with the necklace and the scroll.
The scroll's recovery takes a darker turn in the second part of the book. Tyco has the power to see through time and knows that an ancient evil he calls Narrow Brain hounded and murdered his Elder Grandfather in King Arthur's time and is still present in the world. Tyco must decipher the scroll and defeat this enemy. He takes the boys with him to the Mushroom Planet, Basidium, to discover clues to help him with the unknown language. It is David who squeezes into a room in the ruins of the Lost City that holds a Rosetta Stone key to the ancient language transcribed on its walls. Tyco is able to translate the scroll which was written for him by his Elder Grandfather who also had the power to see through time. It was his ancestor's wish that Tyco urge his people once again to meet at the Great Thronging every thirteen years to share their wonderful artistry and songs together. Twelve other scrolls are also found that were hidden in the hearts of "twelve faithful supporters of all our councils". These scrolls recorded the history, legends, and songs of the Mycetians. Following the joyous discovery of the scrolls and the celebration of Tyco's 385th birthday comes a night of psychic terror and endurance brought on by Narrow Brain when the Mycetians, with the help of the scroll and David's dream vision, search for the Elder Grandfather's hidden bones. The ancient evil is finally defeated and the story ends with the bones taken to be buried in the hidden Mycetian burial ground that no human has ever seen.
