Grandfather left his grandson a seafarer's chest, a parrot called Titanic and a dream - the dream of looking for Atlantis.
"Atlantis is right here all around you," Grandfather said, "you have to learn how to look for it." So when Grandfather dies, the boy starts looking: in the chest, on the shelves, in books, under the stairs.
Colin Thompson's dazzlingly detailed pictures richly illustrate the boy's magical journey of discovery.
