Sky IslandIn Sky Island, Trot and Cap’n Bill are back for a second fairy adventure.  In this adventure they meet  Button-Bright (who readers might remember from The Road to Oz).

Button-Bright has found a magic umbrella that can take him anywhere he wants to go.  All he has to do is tell the umbrella where he wants to go and the umbrella will whisk him away in a flash.

It is on a trip to the Pacific Ocean that Button-Bright meets Trot and Cap’n Bill.  The three quickly become friends, and decide to go for a picnic using the magic umbrella.  Little do the three friends suspect that their picnic will lead to a fairy adventure fraught with peril.

Sky Island is the sequel to The Sea Fairies.  Where The Sea Fairies  is set deep under the sea, Sky Island takes place high in the sky.  In this adventure readers will meet memorable characters, like the evil Boolooroo of the Blues, and revisit favorites like Polychrome, Trot, and Button-Bright.

Interest Level: grades 4-8
