On the Island

Ida’s grandmother lives in the middle of the ocean, on a faraway island. This year, Ida is spending the whole summer with her, exploring the beaches, swimming in the sea, and drawing lighthouses while Grandma bakes cakes. During the day, the island is beautiful and peaceful. But in the evening, when Ida is lying in bed, she hears strange noises: creaking and cracking and humming and fluttering. Where could these sounds be coming from? Ida gathers up all her courage and steps out into the night with her grandmother to find out.
