A great adventure story.
This is a classic adventure story about a family that was shipwrecked on a tropical island and how they survived. They have made several movies about the story, but the book includes many things that can't be covered in a 1 1/2 hour movie. I loved this book as a child and recommend it to both adults and kids. I read books to my two boys for many years and this is one of those books you can enjoy along with the kids.
