Goldie is missing! Following a clue that a golden dragon was seen diving into the heart of a blue grotto, Aditi and her friends fly on Opal to the beautiful hillside of Cumae. Thier search leads to encounters with the Sybil who knows everything, a magic mirror, and the tantrum throwing, earthquake-causing, lava-spewing Vesuvian Giant. Aditi’s adventures take children each time to a different part of the world. This fifth one is set around the island of Capri in Italy. But, again as always, the enduring charm of the book is in its layered depths, in the gentle insights into true friendship, true strength and the power of compassion.
