Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Young Martin's grandfather was once a world explorer, and now he has given Martin a key that opens the door to his secret storeroom. That's where Grandpa keeps a special travel album and a magic necklace that can transport Martin to different faraway places. So, he travels to Mexico with his pet-dragon See-me and is greeted by a local boy named B'alam who keeps appearing and disappearing. B'alam leads him to places such as Mayan ruins, Pyramid of the Sun, Temple of the Feathered Serpent, and more. When Martin is leaving Mexico for home, B'alam appears and gives him a charm made of a volcanic glass to protect him on his way home.
