There is a little island in the ocean—and this book is about how it is on that little island, how the seasons and the storm and the day and night change it, how the lobsters and seals and gulls and everything else live on it, and what the kitten who comes to visit finds out about it.
Several old favorites are being reissued this month. The Caldecott Medal-winning The Little Island by Margaret Wise Brown, illus. by Leonard Weisgard, tells about the seasons and animals that touch a small island ("There was a little Island in the ocean./ Around it the winds blew/ And the birds flew/ And the tides rose and fell on the shore"), and a kitten who comes ashore learns a secret about the island and a lesson about faith.
