The Wonderful Island of Yum

The Wonderful Island of Yum

The Island of Yum is a colourful land you can only get to in your dreams. Peter and Pam were two young children who travelled to Yum where they were met by Splosh, a talkative baby whale who takes them to meet Professor Yum who owns the island. The professor owns a pirate ship and a rocket ship if he needs to travel and there is always the little engine that needs no tracks to travel around the island. There are plenty of other inhabitants, including the Yum Indians who live in tepees, the Snow Boys of Icecream Mountain, the Wizard of Yum and a friendly dragon.
