It was a dark and stormy night when the mysterious stranger left young Basil on the doorstep of his home. He'd been gone two weeks. His mother had been frantic. And now he was safe again. But not for long. For the start of the book is the middle of the adventure. A quest to a far off and terribly strange land. A mission that doesn't go quite according to plan. Here at the nadir of the story, Basil regroups and charges back into the fray. There are friends to save, innocents to rescue, and evils to vanquish, all on a volcanic island hidden in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. From official release/information:
Book Description: Basil Pepperell thinks he's ordinary, but when he and his friend Louise ride her pet pteranodon, Beatrice, to forbidden Monkey Island, they discover an advanced society of monkeys bred to have human intelligence. This is the work of evil Euric von Rottweil, who is planning to use his monkeys to further his plan of "Peace Through World Domination." Stunning full-color illustrations on every page make this a wild, exciting page-turner.
