And then there’s Viola, the girl next door, who can’t ever mind her own business. She even thinks Owen should put his freshly captured bullfrog back into the pond. Then late one night, Owen hears a curious noise when the train passes by his grandfather’s house. Something mysterious and wonderful has fallen off the train. When Owen finally discovers what it is, he realizes he just might need a know-it-all after all. But can he trust Viola keep the most fantastic secret to ever tumble into Carter, Georgia?
Island of the Aunts
Age Level: 8 and up | Grade Level: 4 and up
When the kindly old aunts decide that they need help caring for creatures who live on their hidden island, they know that adults can’t be trusted. What they need are a few special children who can keep a secret-a secret as big as a magical island. And what better way to get children who can keep really big secrets, than to kidnap them! (After all, some children just plain need to be kidnapped.) Don’t miss this wildly inventive and funny read from master storyteller Eva Ibbotson.
“Readers will not be able to put [Island of the Aunts] down! A fine choice for fantasy lovers.” (School Library Journal, starred review)
“Eva Ibbotson does magic, humor, and fantasy for ages 8 to 88+, and you’ll wish her books were never-ending, so enchanting are her characters and fiendishly funny her plots!”
If you’re tempted, take a taste, but just remember…this book is not good for you
