    DESCRIPTION Rose Lagercrantz
    A standalone follow-up to the acclaimed and beloved chapter books that began with NY Times Notable Book My Happy Life.

    It's Dani's first summer vacation—and the best ever! She is staying on an island with Ella, her best friend in the world. Dad is still in hospital but he calls every day, and Ella and Dani stay busy building huts, fishing, exploring, and swimming.

    Then Dad turns up, but with his nurse! This is not the visit anyone had imagined.

    This warm, funny story allows space for strong emotions as Dani comes to terms with her father's new girlfriend, but does so with a light touch.

    Images of the Interactive Book in Action
    Lerner Interactive Books introduce students to knowledge areas in core grade-level curriculum in an engaging format. With titles that span curriculum themes from pre-K - 5th grade, Lerner Interactive Books give readers a digital option for reading that allows them to read, hear, and interact in a way that will engage and motivate them to read more and more often. It's a fast path to deepening students' love of reading and learning.
    From the opening page, audio and visual cues and easy-to-use tools help guide your students through the story. As the story begins, words are highlighted while they're read aloud. This type of word distinction better supports letter and word recognition skills, and keeps kids focused on the structure of how to read.
