Summary

An Indonesian boy wonders if he has special powers like his hero, Spider-Man, after he survives an undersea mining accident similar to that which killed his dad.

Mining for tin in deep, dangerous trenches is the only life that Tono has ever known. Worked to the brink of exhaustion each day, his only escape is in the precious moments when he reads his dad's old comics. In a world of heroes and superpowers, he can forget the terrifying mining pits.

But an underwater avalanche, a glimpse of something bright red in the sandy seabed, and a canny sidekick are about to transform Tono's life forever. Fate collides with a stark reality in this truly unique and unforgettable story.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant or dyslexic readers aged 8+
