There was nothing very special about Mrs. Fiddlefinger. She was a calm, good-natured woman who lived on a small island in Blue Kettle Lake and cooked delicious biscuits in her fat black stove, ""Dash"". There was nothing very special about her island either, until one day Mrs. Fiddlefinger found herself and her island moving, as if by magic, across the lake. After that there was no stopping Mrs. Fiddlefinger's island. Whenever a breeze blew and little waves splashed across the water, Skipping Island took off on a lively voyage across the lake. Did this bother Mrs. Findlefinger? No it did not. She was perfectly delighted. And so will the young reader be, both with this bit of whimsy founded on fact and with the author's homey colored illustrations.
