Publisher's Summary

Fans of Mary Poppins will love this whimsical tale of a boarding school for children of very busy parents, where an extraordinary headmistress teaches them life lessons about courage, adventure, friendship... and the importance of birthday cake.

Nestled inside a lighthouse, Great Rapscott School for the Daughters of Busy Parents takes its motto from Amelia Earhart: Adventure is worthwhile in itself. Headmistress Ms. Rapscott couldn't agree more, but her students, who are shipped to the school in boxes, could use a little convincing. Still, despite their initial reluctance, the students are soon soaring through the sky and getting lost on purpose. In addition to learning what birthday cakes are and how best to approach a bumbershoot tree, the students also manage to learn a little something about strength and bravery.

Best-selling author Elise Primavera has created an irresistible story about finding your way.

Critic Reviews

"Bravo to Katherine Kellgren, whose prodigious narrating skills are on display in this production. Kellgren moves up and down her vocal register with seeming ease and employs a shifting tempo as she narrates this droll tale...." (AudioFile)

"Amusing reading with some life lessons slipped in the cracks. Almost best of all are Primavera’s fanciful pencil illustrations, featuring two of the most delightful (if silent) of the book’s characters, Lewis and Clark, turtle-necked corgis that efficiently manage the girls and their hairraising adventures. An invigorating romp with more adventures on the horizon." (Booklist, starred review)

"Quirky and imaginative, aimed at middle-graders who like their fiction with a twist." (Kirkus Reviews

"Blends artful drawings with a whimsical story line...the plot unfolds nicely. The story is unpredictably unique." (School Library Journal

Great narration, spell-binding story line.

A wonderful combination of great writing for children, and beautiful narration has made this a real favourite in our household. Miss 5 enjoyed it immensley and Mum somehow didn't miss a minute of it either. This will be listened to well into the future, and each time I am sure more details will be picked up.
