Surf’s up, so paddle out now.
Great wave – wipe out!
Uh-oh…where are we?
Usually Vietnamese-American middle grader Trot and her talking cat Cap’n Bill just bob to the surface when surfing, but this time they’re flung into deeper California waters – right into a battle between sea serpents and sirens!
Bill’s claws end the fight quickly, and they return to the sirens’ city for a celebration.
But how can Trot & Bill breathe underwater?
Why did the serpents leave their home territory?
Can Trot & Cap’n Bill return to land where Mom and Grandpa must be worrying?
Which legendary creatures from your grandparents’ bedtime stories would you like to encounter?
