The Island (Small Edition)

Author: John Heffernan & Peter Sheehan (illustrator), Publisher: Five Senses

A smaller edition of John Heffernan's The Island.

How do we find happiness? And once we find it, how do we hold on to it?

“This book tells the story of an island on which a hard-working tribe lives. They rarely smiled, and never laughed, and although there was much beauty on the island, no one noticed. No one, that is, except a little blind boy.”

“The blind boy brings happiness to the people of the island. He shows them how to laugh. But that’s not enough for them. They want to capture this happiness and keep it forever.”

“If only they knew.”
