Robinson Crusoe


This wonderful series is a quick way into a range of exciting stories, from the chilling tale of Frankenstein, to the gripping adventure of Treasure Island and the powerful animal story of Call of the Wild. Fast-moving and accessible, each story is a shortened, dramatically illustrated version of the classic novel, which loses none of the strength and flavour of the original. Available for the first time with an accompanying audio CD. Robinson Crusoe, Daniel Defoe's first novel, was a success from the day it was published in 1719. It is based on the true story of a Scotsman who was left on a desert island after a quarrel with the captain of his ship. Robinson Crusoe is shipwrecked, and survives for nearly thirty years on an island often visited by cannibals, before he is finally offered a chance to escape.
