"Witty, full of heart and genuinely fun to read...a wacky, lighthearted romp."--The New York Times Book Review
Welcome to the further adventures of the plucky Fitzgerald-Trout siblings, who live on a tropical island where the grown-ups are useless, but the kids can drive.
In this second installment, the delightfully self-reliant siblings continue their search for a home. This time, their pursuit will bring them face-to-face with a flood, illegal carnivorous plants, and the chance to win an extraordinary prize at a carnival. Will they finally find a place to call home?
"It's goofy, sweet, and buoyant with good will--Pippi Longstocking for our more hyperactive times."
"Spunk, spirit, and ingenuity only begin to describe these fascinating children."
—School Library Journal
