Robinson Crusoe (Hardback) Robert Ingpen (illustrator), Daniel Defoe (author)
The perfect gift for a young adventurer. Share your beloved childhood stories with the next generation!
Young and impulsive, Robinson Crusoe defies the advice of his parents and runs away to sea. He is plagued by misfortune at every turn; his first ship sinks in a violent storm, his friend and mentor dies, then he is captured by pirates and made a slave in the port of Sallee.
Through all these hardships, 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.
A full-colour illustrated edition of one of the world’s best loved stories.
