Description


In the spirit of Roald Dahl, Suzanne Selfors spins a wonderful and weird middle-grade tale filled with friendship and magic—now in an entirely new package!

Ten-year-old Isabelle lives in Runny Cove where it’s always raining and the whole world has turned gray. When she gets a mysterious visitor with news of an unexpected inheritance, she leaps at the chance to a place full of sunshine . . . and magic!

There, magic grows into cherries that cure ills and fronds that make her fly. But when Isabelle feels the call to return to Runny Cove and use the magic of the farm to stop the rain, her loyalty is put to the test. Can she choose between her new home and the one she left behind?
