All seems idyllic in the small village of Winiperu, nestled in the Amazon rainforest among glittering lakes and waterfalls. But one day the fishermen come back empty-handed and afraid. A gigantic eel has swallowed up all the fish!

Adventurous 10-year-old Tiberius, and his best friend Sun-Raya, volunteer to set out on a quest to find the prehistoric Arapaima. This fish, that is “bigger than a chicken, bigger than a rabbit, bigger than a sheep, bigger than a cow, bigger than an elephant, and bigger than the Monster Eel” is the only thing that can save the village.

On their quest Tiberius, Sun-Raya, and the rest of the volunteers encounter wild animals and other dangers. Will they succeed in bringing the Arapaima safely back home? Can they learn from their experiences? And will Tiberius truly become, as the fortune-teller foretold, the youngest Grand Chief ever?

Tiberius, Arapaima and the Monster Eel is an exuberant tale of ingenuity and bravery, that will delight young readers. In the words of Tiberius: “Life is an adventure every day. Listen to your heart, love what you do. Dreams do come true.”

About the author

Like Tiberius, Patrick V. London spent a happy and adventurous childhood in a village in the Amazonian Basin in South America. At 10 years old, he too witnessed the catch of a mighty Arapaima—the largest freshwater fish in the Amazon rainforest—by his uncle and other villagers.

London is a father and grandfather, and lives in Oshawa, Ontario with his wife, Suzanne. The birth of twin grandchildren inspired Tiberius’s story.
