Publisher's Summary

Every generation has a legend.
Every journey has a first step.
Some heroes are born.
But most are made.
Follow the epic adventures of Alexander Salamander and his best friend William Brown, an average little boy who transforms himself from the physically ordinary to the unexplained extraordinary. When he learns to move like the animals in the forest, he gains a fluid, free form of strength and agility. This he will desperately need because he is in a Great Race against fierce competitors. Magical animals help him get through the darkest, creepiest forest, just crawling with crocodiles, eels and snakes. William soon learns that it takes more than muscle to survive.
