The Island

by Armin Greder

The Island Synopsis

In the morning the people of the island found a man sitting on the shore, there where fate and the ocean currents had set him and his frail raft in the night. When he saw them coming towards him, he rose to his feet.He was not like them. This internationally acclaimed, award-winning picture book is astonishing, powerful and timely.
