Little Walloo can't wait to have her first adventure, too So when the family travels by boat to a tropical island, Little Walloo can't believe her eyes. The air is so moist and fresh, the plants so tall and green. But when the Walloos begin picking the island's leaves and plants, Little Walloo gets a funny feeling. Something is not quite right. What is that gurgle-wurgle-gurgle sound? And is the island . . . moving?
