Writing is excellent and the story is really very strong indeed. I love all the fantasy elements – they are extremely well considered… something really special. I know 6-year-olds and 60-year-olds who would enjoy this! (Lucy Cuthew, author)
A charming and exciting story, and I was impressed by all sorts of things, including the voice of the novel, handling of the structure, and the emerging plot. (Writer’s Workshop)
The White Island is a fantastical middle-grade children’s story about Gopi, a hapless soldier tasked by his Queen with a quest to save the Island. Gopi must cross an ocean, battle a sea dragon and deliver the heir to the White Island to the Upper World until he is ready to return and fight for his legacy.
Eleven years later and Nana tells her grandson Jag the story of the White Island and how it sunk to the bottom of the sea. Jag soon realises that there is more to his history than he has been told.
On his eleventh birthday, Jag’s world is turned upside down. He is sent to live with his Nana in India, but he never makes it. Instead Jag arrives in a very different place, one which has always been his destiny – a destiny that it is now time for him to fulfil.
