Brimming with whimsical illustrations of imaginary animals, this delightful tale of an independent young woman is sure to encourage your own little explorers to dream of their own big adventures.

Intrepid adventurer Amelia finally gets a chance to explore the legendary island of Toucania, following in her grandfather’s footsteps. There she will get to observe the strange creatures that he used to tell her about as she drifted to sleep. Belicorns, chimpanthers and firebats have filled her dreams for years and now she has a chance to see them for herself. But Amelia must get to the island quickly! Otherwise Toucania will soon vanish back into the dense fog that keeps it hidden for decades at a time.
