reading age 9+
Michel is an 11 year old boy living with his family consisting of his Mum, his Dad and there Dog (Stella Artois).
One day the brickworks close's making his dad redundant. His dad buys a boat called the 'Peggy Sue'.
In a storm one night Michel and Stella are washed off the boat in the cold, dark sea of the night. He wakes in the morning to find that he's washed up on a deserted island. He spends the day looking food and water, he curls up that night waiting to die but the next day find food and water. He is not alone.
Over the next few weeks he learns about Kensuke the inhabitant of the island.

This book is full of surprises and you never know what will haven next.
I got in to this book as soon as a started to read it, I could not put it down.
The theme of this book is adventure but don't let this fool you it is also quite heartfelt.
the fount is quite large and there are pictures at the end of the chapters.
I give this book 8/10

hope you enjoyed this review
Lots of Love
