I loved reading this book especially because it marked the beginning of our winter holidays. And with grey skies and low temperatures, it was great to cuddle up inside and read about island adventures in the sun! Belinda Murrell knows exactly how to draw her readers into the action and keep them there until the final page is turned. On to read the sequel and find out what other adventures Pippa has with her new friends on the beautiful island.
