Life can be tough for a loner like Emily. She’s had enough of being the perfect target for bullies. She persuades her brother and sister to run away with her to Galumphagos Island, a paradise on earth. But they find out that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the street, or even the other side of the ocean. They need all their courage and cleverness — and a little luck, too — to get out of the mess they landed in. Seth Eisner blends fantastic creatures, exotic travel, non-stop action, and humor in his story about three young children who learn that real courage isn’t just about adventures. It’s usually about ordinary things, like asking that other lonely girl if you can share her lunch table. Journey to Galumphagos is sure to entertain both adults and children.
Journey to Galumphagos is a very entertaining kids Fantasy book.The Illustration is beautiful,the story line is both fun and meant to teach a lesson.I really enjoyed reading it with my kids.

Seth has been married to Rosalind for 44 years during which she has shown almost infinite patience. They have three adult children, three children-in-law, and six grandchildren, none yet old enough to read Journey to Galumphagos, but they will be by the time the sequel comes out next year.
