Nim's adventures are so crazy, they've now been turned into a major motion picture. We review the book that started it all!

Author: Wendy Orr

Nim is a little girl who lives on an isolated island with her scientist father, Jack, and their crazy pets. Nim might not have a typical childhood, but she's happy. Until the day her father goes missing, that is. Kidzworld takes a look at the book that inspired the upcoming movie of the same name!

Just Sit Right Back and You'll Hear a Tale

Nim, her father Jack, and their pet sea lion, iguana, and sea turtle all live on a tiny island in the middle of the ocean. One day, Jack heads out to sea on his sailboat to conduct a three-day experiment, but he never comes back. Nim is a brave little girl who takes over the chores of island life, but she struggles to cope with her growing fears for her father - and of being alone forever.

A Tale of a Fateful Trip

The challenges have only just begun for poor Nim. Not only is she along on the island, but disaster - in the form of a shady tourist operation - is about to threaten her home. Does she have what it takes to save her father, his experiments, the island, and herself?! You'll have to read Nim's Island to find out!


The Bottom Line

Nim's Island is a great fantasy read with quirky characters and a fabulous tropical setting. This unusual tale sucks you in on the first page and will have you sneakily reading way past bedtime. You won't be able to resist passing this refreshing read on to all of your BFFs.
