Ten-year-old Isabelle has a dreary life in perpetually rainy Runny Cove. She lives with her elderly grandmother in a boardinghouse and works at an umbrella factory-the town's only business. After one particularly awful day, Isabelle goes to the beach, where a boy named Sage rides in on an elephant seal. Sage whisks Isabelle away to Fortune's Farm, a delightful, magical place where Isabelle finds joy. But when Isabelle thinks back to Runny Cove, she wishes all the miserable people there could be as happy as she is. Black-and-white drawings.
