Newt, the son of almighty Poseidon, is an adventurous 12-year-old Atlantean boy. As captain of the Pirate Express, Newt leads a motley crew of unruly pirates on bizarre voyages, much to the chagrin of the original captain, Henri De LaPoutine, who must reluctantly accompany the team on missions despite his demonition. It’s a high stakes game for Newt and his crew, because should the pirates fail, they will be exiled to a ship in a bottle for all eternity.
