Meris the dolphin wants to build a special submarine to show children the wonders of the underwater world. He meets with Amadeus and the butterflies in summer camp to discuss his idea. Unfortunately, his friends do not have the knowledge needed to undertake such a project. They know just the people for the job! Mr. Longview and the children could assist. The butterflies meet with Mr. Longview, Edward, Gaston and Elena to talk about Meris’ project. The children are excited and dedicate themselves to the task of putting together a special underwater machine. They make an original submarine, inspired in part by the Nautilus, a creation of their friend Jules Verne. As for Mr. Longview, he contributes by adding some of his secret potion! Meris is delighted, and to express his gratitude, he invites the children on a magical trip to explore the underwater world.

He asks Boris the pigeon to deliver a message to Mr. Longview asking for some of Lutinia’s magic wood, as well as pleading for a few drops of his secret potion to make his plan work. Edward, Gaston and Elena get involved by gathering some ideas from their friends ‘the Inventors’ in Imaginarium. They then take to the skies in Madame Irma’s aeroplane to travel to various countries in Africa to assist in building what become wonderfully spacious and friendly nurseries. Little El’s mission is a triumph of kindness and good will! To express his gratitude, he invites the children to explore Africa on a magical journey where wonder awaits.
