    “The Cheshire Cheese Cat” sounds interesting. I’m with you, lately I need to avoid sad books. I like that you would bring an herbal remedy book to the island – very clever.

    I recommend “Night of the Howling Dogs” to all the boys who love adventure, I also tell the girls about it, but know the boys will really like it.
    Such a great book it keeps you on the edge of your seat!
