After a monstrous wave washes a creature ashore, the people of a small Cape Cod town hear it wailing. Is it a sea monster in their midst? No, it’s a baby boy as big as a house!
The village adopts the giant baby and names him Stormalong–‘Stormy’ for short. Growing to over 24 feet, Stormy struggles to fit into anything. He takes to the sea aboard a clipper ship to find his place in the world
Meanwhile, a real sea monster, the colossal kraken, attacks the village…and only Stormy is big enough to save his adoptive family!
