Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Newbery Medal winner Island of the Blue Dolphins is considered one of the greatest children's books ever written. This story of survival is as haunting and beautiful today as it was when it first appeared in print. And now, just in time to celebrate the book’s fiftieth anniversary, Sandpiper is honored to bring a new paperback edition of this masterpiece to the next generation. With gorgeous packaging and an introduction by Newbery Medal winner Lois Lowry, this version will guarantee Karana’s story inspires readers for decades to come.

Synopsis:

Scott O'Dell won the Newbery Medal in 1961 for his unforgettable novel Island of the Blue Dolphins, based on the true story of a Nicoleno Indian girl living in solitude between 1835 and 1853 on San Nicolas Island, only 70 miles off the coast of southern California. His quietly gripping tale of Karana's survival, strength, and courage--and vivid descriptions of island life--have captivated readers for decades. This 50th anniversary paperback edition features an introduction by two-time Newbery Medal recipient Lois Lowry. A classic
