Review
Gr. 4-7. The latest title in the Classic Starts series simplifies Defoes famous survival adventure story, one of the first novels ever written, reworking the tortuous prose into a relaxed, chatty style (I felt awful) with short sentences that will be accessible to a grade-school audience. True to the 1719 original, the first-person narrative relates how Crusoe defies his parents, runs away to sea, has various adventures, and survives alone on a desert island until he finds a native man whom Robinson calls Friday. The big difference here is that the two men become friends, pals, and equals. There is not a racist word, nothing about Defoes savages. For contrast, to spark classroom discussion, pair this with Timothy Meis retelling, discussed in Focus: Survivor (BKL Mr 1 03), which stays true to the prejudice in the original. -- Hazel Rochman (Reviewed 02-15-2006) (Booklist, vol 102, number 12, p99)
