The Fair Isle

In chapter three Ryeland and Babette find themselves in the middle of a nautical adventure and make their way north of the Great Britain. On their journey north they see the Aurora Borealis in the night sky and meet a strange and mystical sage who lives at Sheep Rock.  Ryeland also makes his very first friend with a young Icelandic sheep names Zilla. Ryeland’s attitude starts to pick up and turn around on this adventure. He starts to think that maybe it wasn’t the worst thing in the world to be an accidental stow away on a pirate ship.   Here is an artist’s rendering of The Fair Isle which is an island in northern Scotland, lying around halfway between mainland Shetland and the Orkney Islands. It is famous for its bird observatory and a traditional style of knitting.
