The adventures of Robinson Crusoe, so thrillingly imagined by Defoe, were first published in 1719 and have continued to delight and enthral readers of all ages. Masterfully illustrated, this edition has been adapted for children with gripping tales of pirates, daring escapes and strange people.
Young and impulsive, Robinson Crusoe defies the advice of his parents and runs away to sea. He
is plagued by misfortune at every turn but Crusoe’s determination and resourcefulness fills him with hope for a better life, and fate delivers him the opportunity for freedom, friendship and riches. But it is when he is shipwrecked on a deserted island that he faces his greatest test: not simply to survive but to thrive.
