Check out the stories that inspired the motion pictures - "Nim's Island" and "Return to Nim's Island".
This paperback edition contains of two exciting adventure stories by Wendy Orr - "Nim's Island" and "Nim at Sea".
Nim lives on an island in the middle of the wide blue sea, with her father, Jack, a marine iguana called Fred, a sea lion called Selkie, a turtle called Chica and a satellite dish for her email. No one else lives quite like Nim and she wouldn't swap places with anyone.
In "Nim's Island", when Jack disappears in his sailing boat and disaster threatens her home, Nim must be braver than she's ever been before. And she needs help from her friends old and new. "Nim's Island" is now a major feature film starring Jodie Foster, Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) and Gerard Butler (300).
In "Nim at Sea", Nim's new friend Alex Rover flies away without saying goodbye and Selkie the sea lion is captured by villains from a cruise ship. Nim must risk everything to bring them back. A second major feature film has been inspired by this story, called "Return to Nim's Island", starring Australia's own Bindi Irwin.
