Along with his friends, a grumpy old albatross, a short-sighted mermaid, and a friendly island called Cliff, Oliver sets out to rescue his missing parents. On their perilous journey the friends meet evil islands, a boy called Stacey (not a girl's name), and more sea monkeys than you can wave some seaweed at.
And they're off! Who will win the Race to the Top of the World? Helga Hammerfest and her polar bears; bounder and cheat Sir Basil Sprout-Dumpling or Shackleton Jones with his robot-powered sled?
But wait, what's this? Two kids riding a sled pulled by 66 pugs wearing jumpers?! The underdogs are coming.
