Nim’s Island

By: Wendy Orr

Illustrations: Kerry Millard

 

Nim’s life is not quite like anyone else’s. She lives on an island with her father, Jack; a marine iguana called Fred, Selkie the sea lion and Chica the turtle. No-one comes to the island and they communicate with the outside world through e-mail. It is a life Nim loves.

Then one day, while on a research trip, Jack’s boat is caught in a storm and badly damaged, he’s out of contact. Nim is alone and invaders threaten the island. Nim is determined to protect her home but to do so she will need to be braver than ever. Her island friends are loyal helpers but to survive Nim finds she needs to reach out to someone new.

An engaging and fun adventure story with a remarkable heroine. Nim is a character well worth a return visit.
