This is another one of my book reports! I finally finished The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss. It was very long.
A family of four (Papa, Mother (Elizabeth), Fritz, Jack, Ernest, and baby Fransis) are stranded on an island with two dogs (one is named Flora) some goats, sheep, a cow, and a donkey. They live there for ten years before they are discovered. They think that the pretty little island with elegant palm trees, beautiful birds, and crazy monkeys is a peaceful haven. But they soon discover the danger of the island. The book has action-packed parts like: fighting a boa constricter, capturing Angora rabbits, taming buffalo and ostriches, building a tree house, and building a bridge. If you have a LOT of time on your hands, read this book!
