BALLANTYNE, R.M.: Coral Island (The) (Abridged)

Shipwreck! Storms! Pirates! And…surfing? All the ingredients of the ‘boy’s own’ tale (and a few more) are brought together in this classic story.

Ralph has always longed for adventure and he finds it when he, along with the older and wiser Jack and the irrepressible Peterkin, are shipwrecked on a Pacific island. But their exploits don’t stop there. Apart from being battered by storms, they are attacked by sharks, kidnapped by pirates, and have to save a beautiful native girl from an unhappy marriage. They even get a chance to see some surfers in action!

The inspiration for Treasure Island and Peter Pan, R.M. Ballantyne’s story still fires the imagination—listen to it and you too might find yourself longing for the life of the adventurer and the ‘beautiful, bright, green, coral islands’.
