Monkey and Fox are each stranded on an island, but their situations couldn't be more different. Monkey's island is a dessert island, made of chocolate, fruit, and other delicious things. Fox's island is a desert island, made of dirt, rocks, and sand.

But as time goes on, their fortunes gradually flip, and Monkey and Fox come together to learn that no animal is an island.

This wonderfully layered story has themes of consumption and conservation at its center, and wraps up with a sweet and satisfying ending.
