Publisher's Summary

Fans of Mary Poppins will love this whimsical tale of a boarding school for children of very busy parents, where an extraordinary headmistress teaches them life lessons about courage, adventure, friendship... and the importance of birthday cake.
Nestled inside a lighthouse, Great Rapscott School for the Daughters of Busy Parents takes its motto from Amelia Earhart: Adventure is worthwhile in itself. Headmistress Ms. Rapscott couldn't agree more, but her students, who are shipped to the school in boxes, could use a little convincing. Still, despite their initial reluctance, the students are soon soaring through the sky and getting lost on purpose. In addition to learning what birthday cakes are and how best to approach a bumbershoot tree, the students also manage to learn a little something about strength and bravery.
Best-selling author Elise Primavera has created an irresistible story about finding your way.

"Bravo to Katherine Kellgren, whose prodigious narrating skills are on display in this production. Kellgren moves up and down her vocal register with seeming ease and employs a shifting tempo as she narrates this droll tale..." ( AudioFile)
