Dad and Author Tommy Balaam has just published a new Captain Fantastic’s book, The Undersea Monster, aimed at Key Stage One and the third title in the Captain Fantastic series available to buy on Amazon

The story is beautifully illustrated and follows our intrepid hero Captain Fantastic and his loyal canine companion Wilson, as they travel through space to land on a remote blue, sea planet.  But Captain Fantastic doesn’t listen to Wilson’s wise words about the water and dives too deep, needing to be rescued right out of the jaws of the (not so scary) Undersea Monster! 

Read my interview with Tommy talking about his new book and the inspiration behind it.
