Malachi's life is dull, dull, dull. Dad's always busy and school is dreary, especially science. Then Malachi finds a mysterious bottle on the seashore, and things start to get exciting. What he discovers inside the bottle sends Malachi on the journey of his life. But pirates, smugglers and a grumpy pig soon have Malachi regretting his thirst for adventure.
There are battles to be won, and the only one who can fight them is Malachi. Can he save himself and the bottle?
And what about the pig?
