Description

A desert-island adventure, and a subtle observation of friendship, trust and humanity.

Winner of The Children’s Book Award.

Superbly read by DEREK JACOBI.

When Michael is washed up on an island in the Pacific after falling from his parents’ yacht, he struggles to survive on his own. He can’t find food and he can’t find water, and as Michael and his dog curl up to sleep, he knows they cannot last long.

But he soon realises there is someone close by, someone who is watching over him and helping him to stay alive. Following a close-run battle between life and death, the mysterious stranger – Kensuke – allows Michael into his world and they become friends, teaching and learning from each other, until the day of separation becomes inevitable.

A rare gem

This is a book you will want to read/hear. Eloquent and captivating, Derek Jacobi does an amazing job as narrator (of course!), :) and the story is masterfully written.

a nice little story.

I picked this story because it seemed like a short story compared to the books I normally listen to. I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it very much.And I plan to tell my son about it so he can let his son listen to it also.

WOW! JUST WOW!

A very heartwarming story. I know my children would love this (I review audiobooks first before I let them have it). Younger children might find the narration dry at first due to their limited vocabulary but as the story unfolds they will be hooked. I love how Derek Jacobi perform in Japanese accent. I also love the fact that we can maximize this for our homeschool. A MUST TO BE IN YOUR LIBRARY.
