The novel is about two twins, Barry and Harry, who semi-inherit[[hottip:* : It technically belongs to their mother, but they go to check it out anyway.]] some property after their eccentric great-uncle dies. They discover that a metal shack (called the Playhouse) outside their uncle's home has a strange YearInsideHourOutside effect because something about that area acts as a portal to another universe.

* MoreTeethThantheOsmondFamily: The creature coming through a PortalPool from another universe. It was visible from this universe long before it arrived, and the only part of it that was visible was its huge mouthful of teeth. The main character, in fact, spent a whole year waiting for the creature to arrive, knowing only its toothy appearance.
