Alma and her mother are on vacation in Îles-de-la-Madeleine, where she used to live with her father and her mother, until he was lost on his scientific vessel at sea. Will they decide to come back to live here for good? Is it possible to find happiness again after such loss? Alma's wee kitty, Pastel, escapes from their Volkswagon van, and leads them on a real runabout, causing them to bump into a series of new acquaintances. It is possible some will become new friends... or family. Easy to read early novel with images on all pages.
