Professor William Waterman Sherman just wants to be alone. So he decides to take a year off and spend it crossing the Pacific Ocean in a hot-air balloon the likes of which no one has ever seen. But when he is found after just three weeks floating in the Atlantic among the wreckage of twenty hot-air balloons, naturally, the world is eager to know what happened. How did he end up with so many balloons . . . and in the wrong ocean?

A very engaging and suspenseful story. Descriptions of the Krakatoa life is fantastical. The ending, though a little disappointing, was predictable and acceptable.

Vintage charm, quirky inventions, hot air ballooning, unintended adventure and fun suspense! This is one of the great ones!

I loved this book! My favorite part would have to be the description of the Krakatoan restaurant government and the diamond mine. I also liked the Krakatoan inventions. This author was amazingly creative, making this one of my new favorite books.

Just as fantastic as it was when my grade 6 teacher read it to my class over a decade ago.

The inventions marvel the mind, even in 2012! This is a fast-paced, enjoyable read.
