There is a boy who lives alone on a desert island. His house is a castle made of sand. He enjoys frolicking on the beach, surfing in the ocean, and collecting shells on the ocean shore. There are no troubles on his home island. That is, until he begins to question his identity. When the boy begins to wonder who he is, he realizes he’s nothing like the animals on the island. He can’t swing in the trees like the chimpanzees. He can’t race through the ocean waves like the seals. And his nose is nothing like the elephant’s trunk.
One day, a mysterious visitor arrives on the island. The boy has never seen anyone like her. She has striking features—and they’re just like his. Could this strange and unexpected visitor help the boy figure out who he is?
