  • "Finding himself alone on a desert island when everything and everyone he knows and loved has been washed away in a huge storm, Mau is the last surviving member of his nation. He's also completely alone - or so he thinks until he finds the ghost girl. This children's novel encompasses the themes of death and nationhood."@en
  • "When a giant wave destroys his village, Mau is the only one left. Daphne'a traveler from the other side of the globe'is the sole survivor of a shipwreck. Separated by language and customs, the two are united by catastrophe. Slowly, they are joined by other refugees. And as they struggle to protect the small band, Mau and Daphne defy ancestral spirits, challenge death himself, and uncover a long-hidden secret that literally turns the world upside down.</"@en
  • "Mau finds himself alone on a desert island when everything and everyone he knows and loved has been washed away in a huge tsunami. He then meets Daphne, the sole survivor of the wreck of the Sweet Judy. They are not alone for long. Other survivors start to arrive to take refuge on the island they all call the Nation, and then raiders accompanied by murderous mutineers from the Sweet Judy. Together, Mau and Daphne discover some remarkable things - including how to milk a pig and why spitting in beer is a good thing - and start to forge a new Nation. But old history isn't just going to lie down and go away and Mau must look into the past before he can face the future. Suggested level: intermediate, secondary."@en

  • "On the day the world ends, Mau is on his way home from the Boys' Island. And then a huge wave comes, bringing the Sweet Judy through the island rainforest. As the ship comes to a crashing halt, only one soul is left alive. The village has gone. The Nation as it was has gone. Now there's just Mau, a trouserman girl who wears far too much, and an awful lot of big misunderstandings. Together they must forge a new Nation and create a new history. But the old history isn't going to just go away, at least not while the Grandfathers still have a voice. And Mau must look into the past before he can face the future."
  • "A vicious storm has ripped away everything that Mau knows, and he now stands as the lone inhabitant of a desert island. However, when her ship flounders, Daphne joins Mau on the island, and the two work towards surviving together. The lessons that follow create a deep bond of understanding between Mau and Daphne, as they synchronously form their own Nation."
  • "Einen Monat hatte Mau allein auf einem winzigen Atoll im grossen Pelagischen Ozean verbracht. Als Junge hatte er seine Familie verlassen, als Mann kehrt er nun heim zur Insel des Lichts. Doch am Tag seiner Rückkehr zieht ein vernichtender Sturm auf, und eine gigantische Welle tötet alle Bewohner seiner Heimat. Doch Mau ist nicht allein auf seiner Insel: Eines Tages steht ein fremdes, weisses Mädchen vor ihm - Daphne, die einzige Überlebende des gestrandeten Segelschiffs >>Sweet Judy<< und eine entfernte Verwandte der königlichen Familie. Zusammen mit ihr, einem fluchenden Schiffspapagei und weiteren Gestrandeten wagt Mau einen neuen Anfang. Gemeinsam bieten sie dem Schicksal die Stirn und stellen sich dem grössten Abenteuer ihres Lebens. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)."
  • "The sea has taken everything. Thirteen-year-old Mau is the only one left after a giant wave sweeps his island village away. But when much is taken, something is returned, and somewhere in the jungle, Daphne--a girl from the other side of the globe--is the sole survivor of a ship destroyed by the same wave. Together, the two confront the aftermath of catastrophe. And slowly, other refugees arrive--children without parents, mothers without babies, husbands without wives--all of them hungry and all of them frightened. As Mau and Daphne struggle to keep the small band safe and fed, they defy ancestral spirits, challenge death himself, and uncover a long-hidden secret that literally turns the world upside down ..."
