KIRKUS REVIEW

This is fun- a whimsical, original and humorous story, with lots of New England saltiness. Young Randy had always wanted to go across the bay to the inaccessible, unexplored island known as Wreck Island. It takes a storm, and the first recorded freezing of the bay, to bring the old sole inhabitant over to the mainland, where he shares his story with Randy, and gives Randy the chance to go to the island himself and to become heir to his "kingdom". Amusing pictures in black and white.
