About the Author

Daniel Defoe (1660–1731) was an English writer, trader, and journalist, who wrote more than 300 works on a variety of topics that included politics, religion, psychology, crime, and more.

Walter Stanley Paget (1865–1935) was a British illustrator.

Tom Sperling was raised in DeLand, Florida, and earned his degree at St. Andrew’s College in North Carolina before moving to New York City to work as an assistant curator at the Museum of Modern Art. With his real interest in illustration, Sperling began attending The Art Student’s League where he studied under Steven Katz, a leading illustrator from the 1930s to the 1950s. His first professional works were a series of murder mystery covers for Harper Collins. He also did freelance work for children’s magazines and was twice awarded the Paul Revere Award for Graphic Excellence. Sperling's first picture book was Big Bill, a “bad dog” story for Scholastic. He has since illustrated more than fifty book. Sperling also worked extensively England and continues editorial work for a range of clients including The New York Times and CBS Television. Basically, he likes reading something and then imagining how it might look. Sperling currently splits his time between his hometown in Florida and Somerset in the UK.

Though an old story, it still speaks to the imagination of readers all around the world.Widely regarded as the first English novel, Daniel Defoe¿ s "Robinson Crusoe" is one of the most popular and influential adventure stories of all time. This classic tale of shipwreck and survival on an uninhabited island was an instant success when first published in 1719 and has inspired countless imitations. In his own words, Robinson Crusoe tells of the terrible storm that drowned all his shipmates and left him marooned on a deserted island. Forced to overcome despair, doubt, and self-pity, he struggles to create a life for himself in the wilderness. From practically nothing, Crusoe painstakingly learns how to make pottery, grow crops, domesticate livestock, and build a house. His many adventures are recounted in vivid detail, including a fierce battle with cannibals and his rescue of Friday, the man who becomes his trusted companion. Full of enchanting detail and daring heroics, "Robinson Crusoe" is a celebration of courage, patience, ingenuity, and hard work.

Sure, the novel has some deeper themes - the theodicy question being the most obvious. But the real story is in the clever and well-thought-out ways in which Crusoe manages to stay alive on the island. A modern analogue is good strategy-based computer games (SimCity, Age of Empires II) or board games (Monopoly, Settlers of Catan), much of the fun of which is in the society that one watches develop.I found the novel stimulating, though not enthralling. Recommended for intelligent kids - boys, especially - who will do better than most adults at both picking up the language and appreciating the narrator's ability to fend for himself.

If you like adventure, this book is totally for you. I read it every summer for some odd reason but it always gets better. It is a great story about a man stranded on an island and he has to face many challenges such as cannibals. It's a great read!
