This is an exciting adventure and friendship story by a much-loved, award winning author.

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

But then, they find a message in the sand and discover the Birdman is not who they thought.

They build up a lovely friendship with him, but when the children get stranded on Samson Island they don't know whether to believe the birdman's story that the island is cursed.

Set on a remote island against the backdrop of World War I, this story will captivate and delight young readers.
