The crew of the Porpoise begin this adventure in Panama City. They are waiting for a retired carpenter who will be fixing up the homes and churches of missionaries on the many small uncharted islands. After several delays the crew finally sets off to visit as many of these small Pacific islands as possible and chart their locations for map makers. On one island the children become fascinated by all the things Sam's carpenter can carve and hide in his pockets. So they name him Mr. Pockets.
