Adventure on Klickitat IslandBook - 1998
Teamwork saves the forest animals in this gentle storyThere's a big storm raging, and the animals of Klickitat Island are left standing out in the open, a sad and bedraggled bunch. But help is on the way, for when a little boy and his teddy bear hear a cry of distress, they quickly take a boat out to the island to see what's the matter.Told in charming verse, this amusing story by Hilary Horder Hippely is a gently humorous tale of bravery, the power of teamwork, and the importance of sharing. Under the little boy's direction, each animal has a role to play in this communal effort: building a "Klickitat fort" that will keep them all snug and dry.The warm and endearing illustrations by newcomer Barbara Upton will enchant young readers.
