Chloe Miller –
Jacob Miller – Six or seven year old boy.
Emily Miller – The eldest of the Miller Siblings.


Three young children, bored, and tired of living at home set out for the imaginary land of Galumphagos Island. Once there they learn that sometimes getting what you want isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.


I found this to be a very cute little story. At just 84 pages it can be read in one or two nights. While I don’t have kids, it’s aimed at the third grade and above level, and I think kids at that level will find it a very enjoyable story. The more timid kids though may find themselves having nightmares of the Galumphers. However the book I think is very good at teaching cooperation, thinking creatively, and never giving up. It is both entertaining, and educational and for that alone I’m happy to recommend it to anyone with children or grandchildren.

About the Author

Seth Eisner was an unemployed English professor who wrote a 400-page dissertation on Jane Austen before he gave up trying to be poor and went to law school. He spent most of his career as inside counsel at Kraft Foods. He retired as Vice President and Associate General Counsel.

Seth has been married to Rosalind for 44 years during which she has shown almost infinite patience. They have three adult children, three children-in-law, and six grandchildren, none yet old enough to read Journey to Galumphagos, but they will be by the time the sequel comes out next year.
