Adventure abounds as the Alden children spend a summer living on their grandfather's island.  They display a wealth of confidence in their ability to face life's everyday challenges armed only with their clever inventiveness and the support of eachother.  Few subjects are as sure to capture the imaginations of children as the idea of living on their own.  A hint of suspense is woven through the story until the mysterious true identity of Joe the handyman is finally revealed.
