From the publisher

This beautifully illustrated picture book tells the story of St Kilda and its wildlife and the people that once lived there. The perfect book for enquiring minds, it is imaginative, engaging and cleverly conceived, and will delight young readers and keep grown-ups equally intrigued.

This is a true story about a real place. A place hidden behind the waves. The Vikings saw it in their dreams, and sometimes sea birds call its name. It’s a dot on a map. The blink of an eye. The beat of a wing. Storms and songs and stickleback stop by on their travels.

This is St Kilda. A tiny group of islands; an archipelago: Hirta, Boreray, Soay, Dùn. They call them The Islands at the End of the World.

Come on an adventure, far away across the sea to the mysterious St Kilda to discover its story.
