The little creature put the Baleares on the scientific map and so Anna visits those international scientists still passionate about it today. As with both previous titles, the third explores many different aspects of the island s culture, history and landscape. At the same time the book is all about enjoying simple pleasures and learning to take risks in pursuit of real happiness
