    This is the first book that comes to mind when I think of books of my childhood I always loved books about animals; I can't think of a single one of my favourite childhood books that aren't about animals I also loved the setting in Greek The struggles of a poor widowed mother in a village that doesn't think much of single mothers and Andrula's ambiguity about this deeply touched me On the one hand she saw how difficult it was for her mother on the other hand she wanted to be a carefree girl I loved her curiosity her drive for freedom and her yearning The island where she eventually goes is to this day after almost fifty years still the embodiment of magic in nature for me Having read that book enhanced my visit to Greece many years ago and will no doubt cast its beautiful light on my return there next year

    As a child I always resented the Virgin Mary when she forbade the dolphin from taking Andrula to the magic island I always wished that Andrula could stay on the island forever instead of moving away with her new familyNow that I'm older I realize that if Andrula had stayed on the island eventually she would have grown and changed while everyone on the island stayed the same Either that or she would have stopped growing and stayed a child forever which would be even worse It still tears at my heart though when she has to give it upThe writing and storytelling were just as good as I remembered This is one truly magical book
