A seahorse named Storm comes to the rescue when the underwater city of Atlantis is threatened by the vortex and the black manta. Aquaman is on a mission to stop the evil sneezers. A story with twists and turns that is loaded with comic book type action. the characters WHOOSH through the waves and SWIRRRRL around the underwater tornado as the hero acts versus the villain. Can Aquaman save the underwater city from destruction? The action and dialogue are depicted in big bold colorful text that seems to spring off the page at the reader and draw them into the fast paced action encouraging read aloud involvement. This new series of six books from the makers of DC comics pulls together the interest of reading a comic book with the appeal of super heroes and merges those factors into an easy reading early chapter book with less than 50 pages.
