Description
In the morning the people of the island found a man sitting on the shore, there where fate and the ocean currents had set him and his frail raft in the night. When he saw them coming towards him, he rose to his feet...He was not like them...This internationally acclaimed, award-winning picture book is astonishing, powerful and timely.

Reviews

'...offers an important message. Powerful and timely, it provokes discussion about one of the most pertinent issues facing us today...stunning artwork and clear, concise text...appeals to all ages.'Toowoomba Chronicle, 18/8/07'...an important book, and no less important for being pitched at young children as well as adults. The way it reveals the prejudice inherent in humanity is superb...a kind of anti-fairy tale...There are many aspects of The Islandwhich make it wonderful...belongs on bookshelves everywhere.'blogcritics.org, 28/8/07
