KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of William and Miss Mole tells the story of an oddly assorted group of youngsters, ranging from about nine to sixteen who are taken by a youngish aunt, summer holidaying on an island off the coast of Scotland. They live in a trailer (caraven -- in England) and each one has certain responsibilities. Temperamentally, they are pretty much at odds, and the story revolves around their gradual process of ""getting on to themselves"". Somehow, I think it will interest adults more than it will children.
