The lost continent of Atlantis is not lost, but lying low under the waves. Some mysterious power is threatening to destroy it, and it seems that only Robert, lane and Timmy, supposedly on holiday in Cornwall, can save the country- though no one knows how. Atlantis is shaken b) earthquakes and eruptions, and if it breaks apart much of Britain will follow it to the bottom of the ocean. Time is running out. Can the mechanical but eccentric brain of Peter Puter set the children on the right path before it is too late? The distinguished poet, critic and author of The Joke Shop and Wild Ghost Chase completes his memorable sequence of interlinked children’s novels with a singularly original story in which the comic, the fantastic and the mysterious are skilfully blended.
