Three children have been kidnapped by some mysterious, mad aunts and panic is spreading. But Myrtle, Coral and Etta are far from killers - they need the children to help them in a very caring mission.
The secret island where they live is a sanctuary for strange and wonderful creatures - mermaids, selkies, the amazing boobrie bird, and even the great Kraken himself.
The kidnapped children love their magical new life - but the Island of Monsters has become the target of some dangerous villains who want to turn it into a theme park.
