Twelve-year-old Basil thought that nothing exciting would ever happen where he lived, until the day an airship arrived outside his window! After hopping aboard, Basil is taken to Helios, the beautiful city in the sky.

Talented and well-known syndicated comic strip artist Wiley Miller presents a stunningly illustrated tale of a boy who is bored by his life and ready to break free from the lighthouse he calls home. Led off by a wonderfully eccentric professor in a hot-air-balloon ship, Basil travels to another dimension where he and a new friend save the fantasy city of Helios from destruction.
