Siggi is nervous about making the move from the Yukon to Prince Edward Island, but he has bigger things to worry about. Some of the older boys at school are picking on him, and he’s not sure how to get them to stop. He wishes he could just be like everyone else—instead, his Icelandic name makes him stand out.

Things get better for Siggi when he begins to learn some pretty cool things about his heritage. However, an unexpected magical trip to Iceland makes Siggi realize just how lucky he really is.
