Reviews

US Kirkus Review » 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)

Author Biography - Daniel Defoe

Daniel Defoe (c.1660-1731), one of the most famous writers in English literature, was born in London, the son of James Foe, a butcher. It was Daniel who changed his name to De Foe or Defoe in about 1705. He was interested in politics and opposed King James II. After the Glorious Revolution in 1688 and William III was on the throne, Defoe became one of his personal friends. He became a writer for the government and a satircal writer on various social issues of the time. He turned to full time writing after hearing the inspirational story of a sailor who was rescued after living alone on a desert island in the Pacific, the result being his first novel ROBINSON CRUSOE. Several other adventure stories followed, including MOLL FLANDERS.
