Dive into another baron adventure!

Waldo “W.B.” Baron is back with another amazing adventure in another incredible invention! W.B.’s clever inventor parents are hired—by the Vice President!—for a super secret and intensely important treasure hunt to repay a national debt. 

The Baron family’s steam-powered submarine, freshly biggened and ready for adventure, seems like the perfect tool for the job. But between monstrous marine misfortunes, pirate curses, and a hitchhiking monkey marauder, can the Barons find the treasure they seek and save the country from financial ruin?

The Splendid Baron Submarine continues the Baron family’s hilarious adventures from The Magnificent Flying Baron Estate.


Delightfully absurd, imaginative, and fun.
