THE ISLAND OF GHOSTS
New York : Scribner, 1989.
IL 4-6 .
Webb is an engineer. He's an inventor who has settled on an island off
the coast of Ireland. He befriends two bright island boys, preparing them
for the exams that would win them a ticket off island life -- a scholarship
to the University. On the last day of summer, before they are to read for
school, he gets the boys to help him move to the much gossiped about Island
of Ghosts. The tale turns to one of ghosts and kidnapping and wield comparison
of learning for the fun of it and the need for independence.
