The voyage of discovery that Arthur Denison and his son, Will, began in Dinotopia continues in The World Beneath. Professor Denison and Will have been living on Dinotopia for several years, learning the marvels of this lost island continent where dinosaurs and humans have coexisted peacefully for centuries, cut off from the rest of the world.

Now Professor Denison decides to explore the natural mysteries of Dinotopia. He turns his attention to the ancient caves that point to a long-lost Dinotopian civilization that seems to have used a technology beyond any that the Professor has ever before encountered. His journey takes him deeper and deeper into the heart of Dinotopia, into the World Beneath. Little does he know that his quest to uncover Dinotopia’s deepest mystery will soon become a desperate race to save the very existence of the island.
