For use in schools and libraries only. Nim loves her island home and the animals she shares it with even while her scientist father is away doing research, but trouble is on the way and a new e-mail friend could be the only one who can help.
"Plenty of comic, freely-sketched line drawings help to keep the tone light, and Nim, with her unusual associates and just-right mix of self-reliance and vulnerability, makes a character young readers won't soon tire of."
From the Publisher
In this fun fantasy adventure reminiscent of the Swiss Family Robinson and Robinson Crusoe, a girl named Nim lives on a top-secret island with her scientist father, Jack, and a handful of devoted animal friends. It's fine with Nim that her father goes off to explore for a few days. But when a terrible storm cuts off contact between them, Nim must draw on all her strength to cope with Jack's disappearance.
