Praise
"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
Editors Note A girl. An iguana. And e-mail. Meet Nim--a modern-day Robinson Crusoe! She can chop down bananas with a machete, climb tall palm trees, and start a fire with a piece of glass. So she's not afraid when her scientist dad sails off to study plankton for three days, leaving her alone on their island. Besides, it's not as if no one's looking after her--she's got a sea lion to mother her and an iguana for comic relief. She also has an interesting new e-mail pal. But when her father's cell-phone calls stop coming and disaster seems near, Nim has to be stronger and braver than she's ever been before.| And she'll need all her friends to help her.
Annotation 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.
