    This is one of the few times I will say that I prefer what Disney did with the story. Perhaps, it was because the book was the abridged adaptation, but the family seems thrilled to have been shipwrecked and can't wait to set up a homestead. That would have still made for a delightful story if they hadn't shot something in every single chapter. All of the boys have guns and they shoot first and regret later, especially when they shoot, for no good reason, beasts of burdens or other creatures that This is one of the few times I will say that I prefer what Disney did with the story.

All of the boys have guns and they shoot first and regret later, especially when they shoot, for no good reason, beasts of burdens or other creatures that could be used by the family in other ways. They even shoot a shark (spoilers!) Alice wasn't quite old enough to follow the story and really only got into it during the scary bits with the boa constrictor and the goat.

    This book was lame. I haven't seen the movie so I can't compare it to that, though I have heard the movie is better.

    This version of the Swiss Family Robinson was written for upper elementary level children. It would be an enjoyable read for them particularly boys.

The main idea of this story is about a family who was on a cruise and the ship wrecked and every one was split apart but somehow the Robinson family managed to stay together. They where stranded on an island. It is interesting to see all the adventures that they go through like making there own house and hunting for their own food. Even though the trip didn’t go as planned they got to have more family bonding time and had to work together as a team. This book relates to me because when I lived in California I had to leave my friends and that was tough but somehow I managed to push through it and move on. Now I have a lot of friends here in Austin. So if something doesn’t go your way there will most likely be something good that will come out of it even though it is tough, just like what the Robinson family had to go through. I think the overall theme of this story is, “Things might not be easy but you can make something good come out of it”. The Robinson family had to go through a lot of hard things but they managed to make the best of a bad situation.

    The Swiss Family Robinson is about the Robinson family. They were traveling to New Guinea to set up a colony. On their journey they hit a rock during a storm and got stranded. They tried to get to the lifeboats but when they got to the top deck the crew had already abandoned ship. They decided it would be better to stay on the ship than jump off, so they waited out the storm. In the morning the sun was shining and they could see an island.

They decided it would be better to stay on the ship than jump off, so they waited out the storm. In the morning the sun was shining and they could see an island. They started to make a lifeboat out of barrels that were on the ship. Then they hauled up all of the animals and supplies onto their boat and set out for the island. Once they got to shore they built a temporary home. After exploring they decided it would be best to build a home in the trees. That way predators couldn't get them. The Robinson family then had to make it with things they could find on the island and the few supplies they got off the ship. Will the Robinson family make it off the island or will they all die trying to survive? I thought that The Swiss Family Robinson was a really good book I liked the adventure and the survival stuff in the book. Some parts seemed to drag on and I didn't really like that. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure or survival stories.

    Review by James, age 8, 12/16/17 This book starts out on a ship that gets caught in a storm and is shipwrecked. All the lifeboats are gotten before the family can get their kids off and so they miss the lifeboats and so they make boat-ish things out of barrels and paddle them to the shore. They end up on an uninhabited island, but they don't know it at the time. They make a tent. The next day they take supplies from the ship. But soon they found the tent is unsafe because of the wild animals. So Review by James, age 8, 12/16/17 This book starts out on a ship that gets caught in a storm and is shipwrecked. All the lifeboats are gotten before the family can get their kids off and so they miss the lifeboats and so they make boat-ish things out of barrels and paddle them to the shore. They end up on an uninhabited island, but they don't know it at the time. They make a tent. The next day they take supplies from the ship. But soon they found the tent is unsafe because of the wild animals. So they built a tree house - a huge one. It started out small but then they make it bigger. They made candles and the dad constructed a spinning wheel. They found lots of supplies on the island: they found rubber (from a tree) and other things. But they felt like prisoners in winter so when spring finally arrived they started digging a cellar. One of the boys' pickaxes broke the crust, revealing a huge salt cave. And so they decided to make this salt cave a winter settlement area. The papa took bamboo and created a pipeline that went between the treehouse and the winter settlement. It used vacuum to pump the water up. Now they had running water, and so they added in things like a library, and dug out more salt cave. The book ended when a ship found the island and was going to claim the island as theirs and named it, but instead the family came out and said "no, we already have three settlements." Some of the family went home with the ship but others liked it so much they stayed and now there is a small town on the island. Three things I liked about this book: (1) The adventure, (2) the inventions, (3) the miraculous brother who was able to tame pretty much anything. Q: Would you live on their island? A: That's a tricky question, because I'm really used to our modern life at home. Fine, I would live on their island if I lived in their time. Because they didn't have modern technology at the time and their island would probably be a better place to live. Not to mention we could construct a good house of our choice and we wouldn't have to pay taxes to the wicked king.

Over the 10 years they are stuck there they have a lot of ups and downs, but a lot of adventures. They explore most of the island and find a lot of stuff that's worth a lot of money. People later find them and they return to Switzerland. I liked this book a lot because of all of the cool stuff they find like pearls, animals and other things. At first, I thought this book was super lame and thought is was going to be boring but then I got really into it and it was awesome. The interesting part about the book was that they went on so many adventures on the island and there are some dangerous things like huge snakes, and quicksand which made you wonder what was going to happen next. It was a little boring in some of the parts because they didn’t do anything except just keep finding animals, killing them, and eating them. There is a really sad part though that I didn’t like that much when a big boa constrictor gets a donkey and squeezes it to death and then eats it. I still think it is a really good book and recommend it to anyone. I think the theme of the book is you can find joy in anything, because the Robinsons lost almost everything their boat, valuables,people, and other things and they were still happy even though they were sad.

    This book was okay. I think my daughters might give it a 4... but I am tempted to give it a 3. I should think the unabridged version would be better but we did enjoy the illustrations, also. The story is quite idealized in that for all they go through, they have a lot of easy and successful efforts and cheery attitudes. My daughters (ages 10 & 8) would chuckle over how unprobable things were at times (like they make a big welcome sign at one point but my girls were wondering where they found or This book was okay.

My daughters (ages 10 & 8) would chuckle over how unprobable things were at times (like they make a big welcome sign at one point but my girls were wondering where they found or what they used for a writing utensil). My daughters and I also chuckled at times because the things the boys said sounded like something my son would say. I think jr would be especially popular with young boys, though my girls liked it, as well. It’s an enjoyable, light adventure read whose original reasons for being written (writing down imagined bedtime tales by the author’s father) are readily apparent. We enjoyed the read, despite or maybe because of the saccharine storyline wherein there was almost exclusively great joy and delight on the part of abandoned and shipwrecked upper class English men. This version was quite short and to the point. I’d be curious to compare it to the original.

    The Swiss Family Robinson is a fantastic book, by Eliza Gatewood Warren. I can relate to this book because, with my personality and hobbies I love to fish, strategy, and survival. The book is about a family gets stranded on a deserted island with no contact with anyone else. They must explore, build, hunt, and survive as a family. I like the book because there was a lot of conflict on the story and the characters themselves. There was a movie as well that I watch, and now I can say I've seen the The Swiss Family Robinson is a fantastic book, by Eliza Gatewood Warren.

    One of the rare times when the Disney movie is better than the movie. Really missed the pirates! The title of this book should be changed to, “When the Robinson Family shipwrecked on the Garden of Eden.” Loved the subtle nods to Robinson Crusoe.

    This is a very cute book. I love survival books and this is my favorite book. The Robinson family gets shipwrecked and gets stranded on an island and have to survive. They end up building a house and living very pleasantly and peacefully. As long as they have each other they will be okay and that is what I really like about the book, how the Robinsons are a very close family.

    My mother picked this book up as she is learning English and she would like me to help. I know this is a shortened version, so maybe it is simply poorly adapted but Lord was this boring. The characters don't have any personalities. I can't understand why they would be so happy to wreck their boats. They're killing animals here and there, sometimes for no apparent reason. A lot of "they did this and then they did that, and they went there" a continuous flow of actions without much explanation or My mother picked this book up as she is learning English and she would like me to help.

    I’m now even more interested in reading the original. It was a great adventure story that the kiddo enjoyed but there was a lot of manifest destiny type messaging & I can’t wait to see how that was initially presented. I suppose it’s appropriate for the time in which the story was told. I’m now even more interested in reading the original.

    All in all I really liked this book. It was a real page turner, from the start I could not put it down. My favorite parts of the book were when the family had constructed their home and had worked together to solve their problems the mom had said “If it be the will of God," said my wife, "to leave us alone on this solitary place, let us be content; and rejoice that we are all together in safety.” showing that she had took it as a blessing that they where left on this island.

The purpose of the author writing to book was to show how all of the troubles that the family faced that as long as they had stayed together. That mixed with adventure and action made for a great story. This book has had an every lasting impact on the audience and will leave a lasting impact on me. As you can tell by how old the book is it had left and active impact on young readers and lets the mind of them run wild.I had really enjoyed the book and i would recommend it to a friend or family member. I would do this because i had thought that it was a real adventure book that could capture the minds of young readers everywhere.“It was one of those happy days that God grants us sometimes on earth to give us an idea of the bliss of heaven.” Looking back at how the family had blessed every day as if it was their last. The book was written very well and I love how the author had incorporated all of the extra elements to make it just that much better. the way the family had stuck together and worked their way out of it till they were rescued was what the real way to show how to stay together when thing are against you. Something i thought that was weak about the book was they had some unrealistic animals in the area and it didn't take anything away from it, i just thought it would make it better. I did think that the book was captivating and that i could relate to one of the characters. For starter i could most relate to Fritz because he is the oldest boy and was the one that had assisted he dad the most. My favorite section with Fritz in it was when they where bringing back the animals from the ship to the shore and the sharks trying to get to the animals. I love the way he had acted around others and the way he developed as a character as time had went on.
