Ordinary Basil is an indomitable character who gives up at nothing and here sets off on another action-packed adventure to put the world to rights along with her erstwhile friend, Louise. Basil’s fantastic journey will spark the imaginations of readers young and old. The first Ordinary Basil title – The Extraordinary Adventures of Ordinary Basil has been one of our most popular titles so far.

But Basil is about to break the rules and discover the island and all its shocking secrets. Can he save the world from a destructive madman?
