Told in a gentle but nevertheless amusing style, The Last Castaways tells the story of how Grandfather and Roo become passengers on the good ship Unsinkable once more. Aided and abetted by Poopy, a small grey plastic walrus, they manage to get stranded on a desert island. The calm acceptance with which Grandfather meets situations that are in turn hilarious, puzzling, or frightening will appeal to any adult reading the book out loud, and children should also find much that will amuse them. Horse is at all times an amusing raconteur, with illustrations that will delight those who read the story. This book should win converts to the series, or have readers familiar with it begging for more.
