Did you know that Read Island is a real place? It's located in coastal British Columbia, and this remote island is a place my family visits every summer. There are no paved roads, and each cabin is completely self sufficient with solar power and self-contained water systems. All of the animals in the book are inspired by the real creatures -- rare and regular -- who live near the island. These include spirit bear, salmon, bald eagles, sea wolves and more!
