Product description

We must kidnap some children,” announced Aunt Etta. “Young, strong ones. It will be dangerous, but it must be done.”

“Attack of the Killer Aunts,” scream the headlines. “Aunt Plague Menaces City!” Three children have been dramatically kidnapped by some mysterious aunts. But Myrtle, Coral and Etta are far from killers. They need the children for a special mission. The secret island where they live is a sanctuary for magical creatures – mermaids, selkies, the amazing boobrie bird and even the great Kraken himself. Now the kidnapped children will help to care for them. But what will they all do when the Island of Monsters attracts some dangerous villains, who want to turn it into a theme park…?

“Funny, gripping, charming and completely irresistible” Amanda Craig

    This was a great book. Follow the lives of children who have been kidnapped by three aunts and taken to an island roaming with creatures. I would reccomend.
