The Lovereading4Kids comment

Brand-new full colour blue Early Reader edition of James Mayhew's charming story about Miranda's adventures on a desert island.

Miranda is shipwrecked on a desert island but soon learns the best way to survive from watching the animals. She learns how to find food, how to make a house in the trees and even how to make fire using the sun and her glasses! This beautifully illustrated, gentle adventure would make a wonderful story to share at bedtime.

Blue Early Reader books are the first stepping stone to independent reading, perfect for sharing and reading together.
