What Reviewers Are Saying
Adapted, with a conscience, from Defoe under the supervision of Josette Frank, Children's Book Adviser of the Child Study Association of America. The old story still stands up as one of the best adventure yarns for children who are interested in tales of shipwreck. (Kirkus Reviews)
