Description: Idie Grace is twelve when she inherits a dilapidated, grand old house on a tropical island, alive with unfamiliar sounds and colours, and is sent away from everything she knows to be the new mistress of Candletrees House. Idie soon realises that she can do whatever she wishes, and fills the house with the many exotic animals she finds on the island: turtles in the bathtub, monkeys in the parlour, and hummingbirds that will eat from the palm of her hand. But the house holds many secrets and the truth behind Idie's inheritance is the biggest secret of all. Perfect for fans of Eva Ibbotson and Katherine Rundell.
