Timberdoodle's review
The Swiss Family Robinson
While on a voyage across the sea, a family from Switzerland is shipwrecked on a deserted island. To survive, the Robinsons must find food and water, as well as build a shelter. Soon, they discover that the island is filled with plants and animals they've never seen before. Unfortunately, not all of the creatures are friendly.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2017 Third-Grade Curriculum Kit!

Awesome prep for Disney November 2, 2015
Reviewer: Kimberly  
This book happened to coincide with our first trip to the Magic Kingdom. My daughter's eyes lit up and she was able to compare elements in the graphic novel to the attraction we walked through in Adventureland. The book is engaging and beautifully illustrated.

My 8 year son dove into this book March 28, 2015
Reviewer: DaNae J.  
This brightly colored book does a great job of holding my son's attention. He'll sit for an hour pouring over the pictures. Reading the storyline reminded me of reading this story many years ago. A+ The pages are very high quality print and the colors are vibrant.But there is a downside... I do not like the immodesty of the women in these books. They are very skinny and cleavage is not hidden. The illustrators could've done a much better job on the women without showing so much! For this reason. The immodesty is why I take off 1 star. TD Reply: Thank you your excellent and honest review, DaNae! This book has been recently revised, and after looking through the newer edition, we didn't find any instances of the immodesty you described, so happily it seems it is not in this this current edition. Thank you so much for pointing out what could have been a concern for many of our customers, reviews like yours are very helpful!

Great Idea For Children November 27, 2012
Reviewer: MamaSon  
My children were interested in this story since they were familiar with the movie. We will move on to the original now that we have gotten them familiar. The colors in these series are so vibrant. My children enjoy looking at pictures when we read, so this is a very nice find.

The Swiss Family Robinson May 31, 2012
Reviewer: Daisy  
If you have a reluctant reader, this is a great way to introduce them to the Swiss Family Robinson. My son LOVES graphic novels, and this one was a hit with him. Obviously, it's a very condensed version, but the pictures are colorful and captivating, luring a struggling reader into turning the page one more time... This book also contains a glossary (don't know what an albatross is? Wondering what the mangroves they're talking about are ) containing 13 words that a child might wonder about. Also included is a short section including more information about castaways in general, discussion questions, and writing prompts.
