Robinson Crusoe in Words of One Syllable (Version 2)


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

This book is a fictional autobiography of the title character — a castaway who spends 28 years on a remote tropical island near Trinidad, encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers before being rescued. You know the story; but do you know the story told in words of one syllable? Here Lucy Aikin under the pen name of Mary Godolphin retells Daniel Defoe's famous tale of danger and solitude and resourcefulness. Because of the simpler words, this might be a good book for listeners where English is not their first language. By Lucy Aikin and Daniel Defoe. (Summary by Phil Chenevert) (2 hr 31 min)
