On an ordinary day in the countryside, Philemon falls into a well on his father’s farm and lands . . . on the Atlantic Ocean — literally on an A-shaped island complete with unicorns, centaurs, and exploding clocks. He begins a wild and whimsical journey home through a fantasy world as original as Alice’s Wonderland, as richly imagined as Little Nemo’s Slumberland, and as exciting to explore as Oz.

Look closely at the map in your library, classroom or home to discover eight fantastic letters: A-T-L-A-N-T-I-C! You'll be shocked at all the magic that one little word can hold. The farm boy Philemon knows better than anyone what the Atlantic promises; he tumbled down a well last year and fell out the other side onto the island of "A"! That time, Philemon barely escaped with his life. Now he must return to the Atlantic and search for the friend he left behind.
