Books I own by Johann David Wyss

Swiss Family Robinson goodreads

Johann David Wyss

A classic, and for a reason. The constant repetition of "and then we said our prayers before going to bed" gets a bit tiresome, but the dad is a pastor, after all. Also, the island is mad because it's got basically everything on it. Kangaroos? Seriously? Not as scientific as The Mysterious Island, and the second half is nowhere near as good as the first half, but still worth the effort.
