Bestselling Caldecott Honor Illustrator Don Wood, creator of such children's classics as The Napping House ; now applies his artistic genius to the graphic novel genre. In 176 full-color pages of spellbinding, astonishing art, readers follow the island adventures of two brothers, Sumo and Duffy, as they overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. Wood takes readers on a journey to the center of a wild and unexplored volcanic island where only the brave survive.
In this coming-of-age story, Sumo and Duffy Pugg (brothers) are told they must travel to a volcanic island to help an aunt they have never met. When they arrive on the island, they soon discover that their mysterious auntie is up to no good. They are sent on an expedition that takes them on a wild boat ride straight into an errupting volcano. Brothers Sumo and Duffy are trapped inside a deep lava tube — almost certain death. In a wildly dangerous twist of events, the boys try to escape — but rivers of lava are blocking their exit! The remote island of Kocalaha is threatening to explode at any minute. Will the boys survive?
Brilliant, provocative, and arresting, Don Wood's new book presents young and old readers with an utterly original page-turner. "With such a thrilling story, Wood scores points for both pacing and characterization. The action moves along at break-neck speed, and through all of the twists and turns the reader is left wondering if the boys will survive. The art is beautifully rendered in thick bold lines and a rich color palette, and is a nice break from the mainstream comic style...it makes a fun book for parents and children to share together." — Booklist
