Description

Quelque part au large, mais pas trop loin, se trouvent deux îles. Une est en grande partie faite de pierres tandis que l’autre est couverte de sable. C’est là que les problèmes commencent.
La petite Nye ne comprend pas pourquoi les habitants de son île de Sable s’acharnent à construire jour après jour de beaux châteaux de sable qui sont détruits tous les soirs par les habitants de l’île de Roche qui y catapultent des pierres. Quand elle demande pourquoi, on lui répond toujours : « C’est comme ça, c’est tout. » 
Au fil des ans, Nye se rend compte qu’elle a fini par accepter cette situation sans broncher et cela la fâche. Elle décide donc d’agir. Dans cette histoire sur l’injustice et la remise en question du statu quo, les lecteurs seront portés à réfléchir sur ce qu’ils peuvent faire pour changer le monde, et pour quelles raisons.
