Raffi’s Island Adventure
by Sylvain Meunier
illustrated by Elisabeth Eudes-Pascal
translated by Sarah Cummins
Raffi explores the natural life of an island unhindered by his physical disability.
Raffi McCaffery is proud! He stands on a rock on an island, facing the sea. For him, this is a great victory, having had trouble walking for so long. For the first time, Raffi can go camping with his father and his friend Carlito. Two days without having to listen to his sister, what a vacation! To make things even better, he can watch the puffins, grill hot dogs over the fire and explore a deserted island. But is the island really deserted? Soon the discoveries begin, and sleeping under the stars brings many surprises.
