This story is a delightful blend of fact and fancy. Two Highland ponies using their wits, kettle, peat and tent set off to explore what happens on the other side of their home island of Islay. They take a ferry, which lands them in Oban, and then another ferry, which lands them in South Uist. After a stormy crossing they are very glad to pitch camp for the night. The next day they learn about the Princes Cave. Off they go! They meet Bonny Prince Charlie, and together they all return to Islay on his sailing ship. The illustrations are full-colour paper cut-outs, and provide clear and inventive images that lend themselves to detailed investigation. The text is simple and fun. Adults will enjoy this book just as much as children.
