Review: While visiting his grandparents for two weeks each summer, Charlie fights boredom and loneliness by exploring a stream near their house. He finds that when he strikes the metal bridge with a special bridge-ringing stone it gives a very satisfying "BONG" with an accompanying echo. Some days he hears an additional "BONG" from downstream and wonders if perhaps somewhere down there is a kindred spirit with a similar bridge. Maybe next summer the two will meet.
