Description - Island of the Aunts by Eva Ibbotson

When the kindly old aunts decide that they need help caring for creatures who live on their hidden island, they know that adults can't be trusted.

(After all, some children just plain need to be kidnapped.) Don't miss this wildly inventive and funny read from master storyteller Eva Ibbotson.
