It was supposed to be a restful journey across the sea…

What was supposed to be a relaxing ocean crossing for Billy Stuart and his friends after their adventures on the island of Crete quickly transforms into a veritable odyssey. A violent storm throws them off their maritime course and leads to a downpour of events with potentially tragic consequences: mutiny, vicious monster attacks, siren songs and more. The dire situation doesn't get any better when they finally make it to shore. A thousand dangers make the Zintrepids' every waking moment seem like a nightmare. And is Billy Stuart still on the trail of his grandfather, the explorer Virgil Stuart who has traveled through time? Or are the Zintrepids forever lost in an unknown age and strange place?

Brightly illustrated and enhanced with games and puzzles throughout, Billy Stuart and the Sea of One Thousand Dangers is the third title in the Billy Stuart Adventures series, following Billy Stuart and the Zintrepids and Billy Stuart in the Minotaur's Lair.

A prolific author, Alain M. Bergeron has written over 300 children's books. He collaborated with Quebecois artist Sampar to create Billy Stuart and the Zintrepids, a colorful cast of Scouts that includes a raccoon, fox, chameleon, skunk and weasel. This intrepid crew made one fateful mistake and has been suffering the consequences ever since. Alain devotes himself exclusively to leading school workshops and writing, and his inexhaustible imagination has made him a fixture in children's literature and garnered many awards and accolades. Alain lives in Victoriaville, Quebec.

Multitalented, self-taught illustrator and cartoonist Samuel Parent, better known by the pen name Sampar, possesses a lively imagination that draws viewers into worlds that are moving, wacky and sometimes even mythical. His career as an illustrator hit its stride at the humor magazine Safarir, earning him widespread acclaim in Quebec, the United States and Australia. Sampar lives in Victoriaville, Quebec.
