It seems there's little hope...that is until the Zanzibar is wrecked on the island's rocks and everything changes.

Why the Whales Came: Gracie and her friend, Daniel have always been warned to stay away from the Birdman and his side of the island.

They find a message in the sand and discover the Birdman is not who they thought.

Then the children get stranded on Samson Island...Former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, demonstrates why he is considered to be the master story teller with these engrossing Island Tales.
