The Swiss Family Robinson

The Swiss Family Robinson

The Swiss Family Robinson was published in 1812 (German), 1814 (English), adapted into the classic 1960 Disney movie, Swiss Family Robinson, an adventure suited for the whole family. Wyss was inspired by Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, to write a story about a castaway family in which the father taught important lessons to his children. We offer the 2000 edition which restores many of the interesting details of earlier versions no longer in print. It is volume one of The Castaways Collection.

We feature Wyss' novel in our collection of Books for Young Readers.
