Children Ages 8+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

In this modern survival story Nim and her scientist dad live on a private tropical island supported by 21st-century gadgets--from laptop and cell phone to solar panels and satellite dish. When Nim's father sails off to study plankton, they communicate by email or notes carried by frigate bird. With a dearth of human characters--Nim's three friends are wild animals--the story's serious threats come from storms and volcanic eruptions. With a perky tone Kate Reading keeps listeners engaged as the descriptions of daily tasks alternate with descriptions of the pleasures of island living. Through unlikely plot twists, Reading keeps suspense alive as a marvelous cyberfriendship, built on mistaken identities, develops in this satisfying adventure.
