Unfortunately I have to take a break from blogging Lemony Snicket’s new books because the rest of the series isn’t actually out yet. So while I wait I’ll just have to blog on other books!! I’ve recently read Nim’s Island and Nim at Sea by Wendy Orr. You might have heard of Nim’s Island the film but have you read the book? Here’s my blog on it…. (buy the book here)
Nim and her father Jack lived alone on a beauitful island and there they were happy. Nim had lots of friends – Fred the marine iguana, Selkie the sea lion and Chica the turtle. But one day, Jack goes out to sea on a boat and he gets lost in a storm. On the island Nim has made an email friend named Alex Rover* who is actually a world famous book writer. When Alex hears that Nim is alone on a deserted island she comes to rescue her. But the thing is, Alex is nothing like the courageous characters in her books. Can she overcome all her fears to save her new friend and her island?
This book I very much enjoyed! I love the way it really makes you want to be Nim on an amazing island. I also like that the author adds in emails that are shared between Nim and Alex – infact, probably a fifth of the book is actually emails. It’s very clever. A great adventure with some great characters!!
