‘The breathtaking adventure continues in the sequel to the much-loved Orphans of the Tide. Orphans Ellie and Seth have crossed an endless ocean in search of freedom and peace. Arriving on the shores of a colourful tropical island ruled by a mysterious queen, it seems they might just have found the perfect new home.‘
We’ve had Shipwreck Island on pre-order since last May, so to say that we’re excited about this book being released tomorrow would be an understatement! We’ve literally cleared our diaries for the weekend, warned off family members and started setting up our comfy spaces so that we can fully indulge in this little treasure. If the pre-released chapters are anything to go by, then we know we’re going to be hooked! (Fishing pun fully intended!)
During the first lockdown, we read Orphans of the Tide to our year 6 bubbles. The children were so enthralled that they actually gave the story a round of applause when we finished it. We’ll forever be grateful for the escapism Ellie and Seth gave us during that time…but they left us with so many questions!!
Will Ellie be able to resist asking The Enemy for help? Will Seth ever be reunited with the other Gods? And will they both finally find a place that accepts them, to call home?
We can’t wait to find out!
