Makes you want to book a holiday to the Isles of Scilly !!!!
on 31 August 1999
This book is set on the Isles of Scilly in the first world war. Its all about two children (Daniel and Gracie),and the birdman, who is meant to be mad and can set curses on you. The children make friends with him and in the end he is forced to tell the secret behind cursed Samson, a nearby empty island... This book is a bit slow moving at first but speeds up quickly. It was made into a successful film in 1989, now it is very successful with me.
