Somewhere in the middle of the sea (not always in the same place) lies the island of Neverbelieve, populated with unusual creatures and astonishing discoveries.
Explore the Land of Neverbelieve in these lush, vibrantly illustrated pages. Meet the island's gentle, doll-like inhabitants. Discover its boggling collection of trees, such as the pasta tree, the rope tree, and the chocolate tree (taste the peppermint center if you have a chance). Be certain to visit Book Mountain, which whispers stories at bedtime. Observe the volcanic turtle and screaming night moth from afar. And beware the Spooky Dark Mountains, a horribly horrible area full of never-ending nastiness. Above all, don t go swimming or sailing, lest the island get up and walk away. Investigating the Land of Neverbelieve is a fantastical adventure for imaginative young readers.
