Peter was having so much fun exploring the cave that he didn't notice what the rest of his family were doing, so when the car starts up he had a terrible shock. Had his parents really driven off and left him alone in the French countryside. Not sure what to do for the best, Peter decides to hide out and wait for his parents to come back, but managing in a strange country is not an easy matter and Peter has to rally all his resources to survive.
