  About The Book

The Fitzgerald-Trouts have a bit of luck at a summer carnival and it looks like they may at last have a place to call home. But as the siblings know, grown-ups ruin everything, and sure enough, Johnny Trout is back on the scene with a plot so sinister, the whole island is at risk. The siblings will have to use their wits, and rely on each other to save their home.


Award-winning poet and screenwriter Esta Spalding's debut middle grade series transports readers to a marvelous place where children fend for themselves, and adults only get in the way. This extraordinary world is brought to vibrant life by Sydney Smith, the award-winning artist behind Sidewalk Flowers.
