Levi and Mia are certain: if they manage to discover the sunken city in the sea, everything will be fine again. Their archaeologist parents will no longer fight and their family won’t break apart. Luckily, they gain the support of magic shoemaker Lilly and Monsieur Archibald, the dragon, because without magical flippers their plan would be much too dangerous.

About the Series

The Illustrator

Alica Räth is always very excited when Monsieur Archibald knocks on the small window of her loft in Abensberg. He brings her sketches by Lilly’s uncle Clemens and of course all the news from the magical shoemaker’s workshop. Alica has been drawing these magical shoes since she started studying at the Academy for Design in Rostock, often deep into the night, while the dragon sleeps next to her, tucked into the bookshelf.
