Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 088899396X, Hardcover)A little boy lives all alone on a mysterious island--or so he says. He's alone, sure, if you can ignore the wolf, two cats, three ants, and the swooping bat that share the island with him. In the playful hands of award-winning author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay (Stella, Star of the Sea), young readers will discover a fabulously fantastic world of make-believe and magic lurking just behind the story that her young narrator tells. Does nothing happen on the island, as our young friend keeps insisting? What are we to make then of that fire-breathing dragon circling the island, those blue and white flying fish swooping over the water, or the big gray elephants parachuting off the sides of that erupting volcano? Gay's simple text and evocative watercolour illustrations neatly play off one another, creating a rich visual drama that young readers will find endlessly fascinating. Gay's pictures include scraps of newspaper, Japanese paper, and an imaginative flair that is sure to entice young readers back for another visit to this enchanting island. (Ages 3 to 6) --Jeffrey Canton
