Professor William Waterman Sherman intends to fly across the Pacific Ocean. But, through a twist of fate, he lands on the island of Krakatoa in the Pacific Ocean, and discovers a world of unimaginable wealth, eccentric inhabitants, and incredible balloon inventions. The volcano, Krakatoa, blew up just after he left it, and he was picked up three weeks later in the Atlantic Ocean clinging to the wreckage of twenty balloons. Read Professor Sherman's amazing story of his most incredible journey. This book won the Newbery Medal in 1948.
