"[A] fantasy tale as welcome as a breath of fresh tropical air....With ample doses of suspense and comedy...the tale portrays the improbable so cleverly that readers will want to believe everything about the likable Nim and her idyllic isle." (Publishers Weekly)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was funny and entertaining. It was also nice to see a strong, girl heroine.
I loved the movie but I'm glad I didn't miss the book! It is delightful and so cleverly written. This is a true classic in children's literature! -Not that it is just for children. It has appeal for adults, too. The author's plain but sprightly narrative is most engaging. A very worthwhile book!
I wish I had a dozen kids I could share this book with! It is such a fun little read. My only sadness is that Random House has not yet recorded or released the second Nim's Island book. You'll have to read that one yourself (I plan to!).
My daughter dreams of swimming with sharks and living on the water. She has kayaked the islands of Tampa Bay, and studied the ocean in school. This audio book took her into her dreams. She read the book and then enjoyed just listening to the story over again. We both agree the movie was good, the book was better.
