    " This was a very gentle book set in the scilly isles, about 2 children, Daniel and Grace who befriend the islands "misfit" the birdman although warned to keep away from him, they make friends with him.It shows the changes that come about the island when war is declared and Grace's father joins the war effort as a sailor, it highlightes peoples ignorance towards other people who may not fit in with everyone elses ideals. The children have many adventures and the end of the book when the whales do actually come is heartstopping, a heartwarming read. "
