The much-anticipated second book in a Dahl-esque middle-grade series by award-winning poet and screenwriter Esta Spalding, with illustrations by acclaimed artist Sydney Smith.

Welcome to the further adventures of the plucky Fitzgerald-Trout siblings, who live on a tropical island where the grown-ups are useless, but the kids can drive.

In this second installment, the delightfully self-reliant siblings continue their search for a home. This time, their pursuit will bring them face-to-face with a flood, illegal carnivorous plants, and the chance to win an extraordinary prize at a carnival. Will they finally find the place they truly belong?

Part II of an excellent story following articulate and adventurous kids. Huge Kudos to Spalding for an intellectual read for children of all ages with our without parents who would also enjoy the story, characters and subject matter.
