Running around Green Kwe's moat, gardens and mysterious rooms, Tolly slowly discovers them, their toys and animals, and their wonderful stories...River at Green Kwe 'What a lot of islands the river makes,' said Ida. 'We must go exploring and sail around them all.' And so begins a wonderful, magical summer. Ida, Oscar and Ping are staying with Ida's great-aunt at the ancient, river-encircled house of Green Kwe. They set out to chart the river in the cae, and soon discover that it has some surprising and mysterious secrets.
