The children in Timpetill are so rotten, ill-behaved, and just all-around unpleasant that one night all the grown-ups in town leave for good. It falls to the kids to take care of themselves, and doing so is a lot harder than it looks. Not only must Thomas, Michael, and his friends figure out how to turn on the town's water, run the electricity, and feed a population of whiny children but they have do all that while battling a gang of the very worst kids--the ones who brought down this strange punishment in the first place.
