`Swiss Family Robinson' is a Ladybird Children's Classic book, which is a series of books; the collection includes Around the World in Eighty Days, The Happy Prince and Other Stories and Tales from the Jungle Book. Obviously, this book is in it too. It is quite well known and loved. Here is a brief analysis of it.
The main characters are the family of course: the unnamed man, his wife, their children (Francis, Jack, Ernest and Fritz), and their dog Turk.
The first setting is at sea, a rough, stormy sea, and the second setting is on an island, full of birds and animals; it also had some wonderful, colourful, beautiful plants! How will they survive on this island with a limited amount of (salty) food?
Rating and recommendation
I would rate this book 9/10 and would recommend it to all children who like exciting stories!
