Swiss Family Robinson is an exciting book. In the beginning of the book, the Robinsons are shipwrecked on an island. They build a tree house and dig out a salt cave. They find sugar cane and drink the sweet juice out of it. In the end, they find a ship sailing near the island and row their row boat they made out to it. Half of the family decides to leave and half of the family stays. My favorite part is when they build the huge tree house.
