This wonderfully imaginative story, so delightfully illustrated in pastels, incorporates many beautiful details and memories, both fact and fiction, to take the young reader on a trip of a lifetime. The author cleverly weaves her own lifelong memories, of a childhood spent on Manitoulin, with this freshwater island's colourful scenery, geography and First Nations language. Overcoming the blending of their two families, peer pressure, and bullying, Katie and Caleb finally enjoy an adventure full of holiday magic that is beyond their wildest dreams.
