Meet Alex Neptune, the boy with the power of the ocean in his hands - a brand-new hero for fans of Percy Jackson and Dragon Realm!

For as long as Alex Neptune can remember, the ocean has been trying to kill him. So he's not too happy when a bunch of sea creatures drag him to the abandoned aquarium on the hill, where an imprisoned water dragon needs his help. But how can he say no to a magical myth?

Recruiting his tech-genius best friend Zoey, legend-lover Anil, a sharp-shooting octopus, four acrobatic otters and a thieving seagull, Alex plots a heist to break the dragon out. And suddenly discovers the power of the ocean at his fingertips...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I loved it! I thought it was a rich and exciting story, with a wonderfully creative and magical blend of folklore and relatable crises. And I badly want my own water-dragon...' - LD Lapinski, author of The Strangeworlds Travel Agency

'Featuring a faded seaside town teeming with legend and danger, Alex Neptune is fun and full of heart, perfect for readers who love mysteries and heists.' - Sarah Driver, author of The Huntress trilogy

'With as much mystery and intrigue as the ocean itself, readers will be swept away by this adventure.' - Clare Povey, author of The Unexpected Tale of Bastien Bonlivre

'This book has all the elements to make the perfect MG adventure - it's funny, it's got strange and familiar creatures and a brilliant cast of characters.' - Maisie Chan, author of Danny Chung Does Not Do Maths

“Exciting and informative”

A fantastic summer read for children. I thoroughly enjoyed the story but also the cast of characters. All are well developed and have their own distinct personalities.

“How to Attain Your Dragon”

I've not been this excited about a modern kids book in years. A very funny, well-written, magical adventure story.

And David Owen refers to otters as "water sausages"; that's just hilarious.
