many of you have an aunt? That's terrific! What kind of professions
do your aunt's have? (Take a few responses.) Do any of your
aunts tend mermaids? How about very long worms or a little kraken
or a seal or a boobrie that lays eggs so big that just one egg makes 72
omelets? No??? One more question: have any of your aunts
ever been a kidnapper?
Of course, it's not as bad
as it sounds. The aunts, Etta, Coral and Myrtle are caretakers of
an island and all these exotic creatures come to the island. They
like it so much that they never want to leave! But the poor aunts
are getting old and they need help. Can they kidnap one of you like
they did Minette and Fabio and Lambert?
If you want to go on a hilarious
adventure read ISLAND OF THE AUNTS by Eva Ibbotson. (New
