On a tiny island far away, in a sea that ripples with magic, Monty never knows what he might find...

Everyone loves Bring-and-Buy Day, when Trader Jolly visits the Island with all the supplies Monty and his friends need. But this Bring-and-Buy day is different. Instead of Trader Jolly, there's a sneaky new trader called Beady Bold. And he's arrived with a boatload of trouble. The yum-yams are yummy, but they're hiding a very scary secret. All seems lost until Monty comes up with a daring plan.

A charming and exciting series from beloved author Emily Rodda.

Following on from the wonderful first title in the Monty’s Island series (which was Book of the Month in your April Standing Order selection), Emily Rodda has not disappointed in her return to the island for Book 2.

We once again follow Monty, Tawny, Marigold, Bunch, Clink and Sir Wise and the adventures they have on their island home.

Today is Bring-and-Buy Day - the day that Trader Jolly arrives and they swap things for the goods they need. But instead of Trader Jolly, Beady Bold arrives instead. And along with him, a whole lot of trouble!

Can Monty come up with a plan to save the day?

Another magical adventure that junior and middle primary aged readers will love.
