Lemuel Squirrel is a seemingly harmless, old eccentric, living a hermit’s lonely existence in his Oregon Forest home. But his life is a mere trick, a disguise to deceive those closest to him and hide his real identity – for Lemuel is, in fact, a maverick secret agent, aged thirty-three and a half. Unbeknown to globe-trotting Lemuel, his cover has been blown by mysterious enemy spies.

In the face of impending doom, Lemuel leads them aboard his inflatable airship and before long it’s rising out of his workshop’s skylight, emerging into the orange-tinted night sky. However, Lemuel’s young companions quickly discover that their problems are only just beginning as they are caught in his battle against merciless enemy spies – who are willing to do whatever it takes to get hold of Lemuel’s latest assignment...
