Life can be tough for a loner like Emily. She's had enough of being the perfect target for bullies. She persuades her brother and sister to run away with her to Galumphagos Island, a paradise on earth. But they find out that the grass isn't always greener on the other side of the street, or even the other side of the ocean. They need all their courage and cleverness -- and a little luck, too -- to get out of the mess they landed in. Seth Eisner blends humor and non-stop action in his story about three young children who learn that real courage isn't just about adventures. It's usually about ordinary things, like asking that other lonely girl if you can share her lunch table.First Sentence:
Chloe Miller stood at her easel in the Rec Room.
