In this book the children's grandfather lets them go to an island for the summer. Sure, there are adults present on the island and grandpa does visit, but most of the time the children are left to fend for themselves. They find, buy, prepare, and cook their own meals, they manage whatever crises come to pass, the learn to seek help when problems are too large to handle on their own. The also have so much fun exploring and discovering.
Hen really appreciates the adventures presented in these books so we'll definitely keep on reading them.
