Avis Dolphin free pdf Avis Dolphin doesn't want to sail to England on the "Lusitania." War is raging in Europe, and the Germans threaten to sink the ship. Avis is lonely and afraid until she meets a kindly professor whose stories of a magical island help her face an uncertain future. When the "Lusitania" is attacked, Avis must draw on all her newfound strength to cope with the confusion, terror and despair. How can she survive the sudden devastation of the ship? Will the people she cares about, especially the professor, live through the horror and danger? The immediacy of Frieda Wishinsky's voice engages readers in this thrilling story based on real events. Set against a background of growing anxiety, readers are glued to the dramatic unfolding events and the surprising fate of the people they have come to know. Willow Dawson's art depicts the stories the professor tells Avis in enchanting graphic-novel form. They provide a riveting magical element to the story, creating a story-within-a-story. Like Avis, readers will fall in love with Foula and will dream of the island long after they have reached the last page of this exciting story.
