Synopsis

Amina and the Shell by Deborah Alexander

Amina and her family live in a beautiful lush valley on a tropical island. After yet another storm ruins their vegetable garden, Amina finds a tunnel through the debris to the other side of the mountain, where giants live. As soon as she arrives, Amina has her first encounter with the giants. One of them picks up the beautiful shell she is hiding in and carries it off. She needs the help of some clever mice to escape and returns home with a gift for her parents. A tropical fairy tale.
