The Children of Aldebaran is a fantasy adventure for younger readers set in a dystopian future when the time of the Big People is past and the world is ruled by the Animals.

Silas Farsight, a young otter who looks forward to a life as a lawyer in the forest village, is horrified one day when his cousin is kidnapped by a gang of ferocious cats. With the help of the badgers, the protectors of the Forest, and his indentured clerk Stoaty Cuttleworth, he sets off in pursuit of the captors.

His cousin, Magda, is being taken to the Dark City, where an evil beast known as the Great Cat has set up and is plotting imperial domination of the Free Animals. Silas and his companions must rescue her. Silas’ adventures lead him to contact the Sea Otters, a wild and mysterious, unpredictable and dangerous group, of who he knows only myth and legend.

Yet it is with them that he will find his own true destiny. A fast-paced and exciting fantasy adventure.

I wrote this piece about a sea-monster in 2008 and always liked it. It was aimed at children and those with young minds. I hope you enjoy it. It’s about the right length for a bedtime story too.

The monster Geewaha-nalior cruises the endless blue sea once again.

Long, long years he had slept, resting on a coral beach. His head lay on the sand and his body and tail stretched for miles out into the sea; and as men began to navigate the world, again and again ships crashed into the scales of his back, wrecking themselves.
