In pre-European New Zealand, the tiny Island of Kaitangata was the scene of awful happenings. After that, the Island seemed to have a life of its own. It dreamt terrible dreams. The local tribe knew it was best to leave it alone. And so the Island slept again. But now Kaitangata is twitching. It's moving. It's waking up! The last time it moved was over fifty years ago. It twitched. And a girl disappeared without a trace, apparently swallowed up by the Island. Now it's moving again. Dreaming again. Only 12-year-old Meredith can stop it. If she can discover what it wants before it's too late. Before it claims another victim. Based on the novel by Margaret Mahy
