Alfred A. Knopf, 2001 - 125 oldal
A girl. An iguana. An island. And e-mail. Meet Nim - a modern-day Robinson Crusoe! She can chop down bananas with a machete, climb tall palm trees, and start a fire with a piece of glass. So she ' s not afraid when her scientist dad sails off to study plankton for three days, leaving her alone on their island. Besides, it ' s not as if no one ' s looking after her - she ' s got a sea lion to mother her and an iguana for comic relief. She also has an interesting new e-mail pal. But when her father ' s cell-phone calls stop coming and disaster seems near, Nim has to be stronger and braver than she ' s ever been before.
And she ' ll need all her friends to help her.
