Summary (From the publisher):

It's tough to be a little kid—especially when you're a giant!

After hours of drifting at sea in a small rubber raft, Jim, Peggy, and bossy Ralph are overjoyed to land on a sandy shore. The beach looks normal enough—sand, water, and trees—but it doesn't take long for the kids to realize that this island is not like the world they left behind.

The entire island is in miniature.

There are little villages, mini-roads, even cities with tiny skyscrapers.

The kids would love to play with the doll-sized vehicles and houses...Until they discover that the tiny buildings have all-too-alive tiny people who live in them.

It's getting late, and it's time to go home, but how are these little folks going to help three giants?!
