Publisher Comments:

A girl. An iguana. An island. 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 shes not afraid when her scientist dad sails off to study plankton for three days, leaving her alone on their island. Besides, its not as if no ones looking after her–shes 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 fathers cell-phone calls stop coming and disaster seems near, Nim has to be stronger and braver than shes ever been before.

And shell need all her friends to help her.

About the Author

Wendy Orr wrote her very first draft of Nim’s Island at age nine. Further inspiration came from the letters her parents sent during their sailing trip to the Galápagos Islands. She is the author of Peeling the Onion, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults.

Nim's Island is a great family movie,and a wonderful children's book.There is something for the whole family.
The ending was perfect. I'm just a housewife from Ohio. But I get ideas when I watch movies. I would love to see a second movie of Nim's Island (All Grown Up).
I would love to see Nim as a teenager or as a youg 20 year old. And the boy from the cruise to return to the Island after years of thinking of her and possibly loving her. Thanks to everyone envoled in the great efforts to get this out to our young people. It is so refreshing to finally set down and watch a movie that has no inapporiate humor;laungang;or situations that younger children should not be exposed to.
