Publisher's Summary

An irresistible adventure fantasy about Nim - a young girl alone on a tropical island except for her three amazing friends: an iguana, a sea-lion and a turtle, plus a satellite dish for her e-mail. No one else in the world lives quite like Nim, and she wouldn't swap places with anyone.

But when Jack, Nim's Dad, disappears in his sailing boat, and disaster threatens her home, Nim must be braver than she's ever been before. Just as well she can call on her friends, old and new, to help!

Critic Reviews

"Wendy Orr tweaks coincidence to create a refreshing fantasy tale... With ample doses of suspense and comedy and a pleasingly sappy happily-ever-after ending, the tale portrays the improbable so cleverly that readers will want to believe everything about the likable Nim and her idyllic isle." ( Los Angeles Times)
