Product Description


"The realistic depiction of life on the island off the west coast conveys the wonder and beauty of nature...Although fashion trends have changed since the original 1992 release, nature never goes out of style, making this an appropriate and lovely addition." (School Library Journal 2015-07-01) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
