The Extraordinary Adventures Of Ordinary Basil by Wiley Miller, pounds 9.99 h/b (Bloomsbury)

A BOOK as unusual and fascinating as its title hero, Basil.

Illustrated and written by the author, its colourful drawings alone will have you gripped.

But the story tells the brilliant and bizarre tale of Basil, who is 12 and lives in a lighthouse in a small coastal town.

His life is quite dull - but all that is about to change when he least expects it.

Basil has a surprise visitor, an eccentric professor steering a flying boat, who invites him to travel to Helios, a floating city filled with other-wordly inventions and ideas which are sure to spark the imaginations of readers young and old.

From flying on a pteranodon to battling an evil genius, Basil Pepperell's life will never be ordinary again.

His life isn't ordinary - and neither is this book. A treasure trove of wonder.
