About this deal

Daphne Kutzer has observed that "the swift movement of the story from coastal England to exotic Pacific island is similar to the swift movement from the real world to the fantastic in children's fantasy". The novel was still considered a classic for English primary school children in the early 20th century. Brantlinger, Patrick (1985), "Victorians and Africans: The Genealogy of the Myth of the Dark Continent", Critical Inquiry, 12 (1): 166–203, doi: 10.

The writing is strong and I know for the right person, read at the right time, this book could mean so, so much. My hope is that Coral’s tale may be a small pinprick of light in your darkness—a reminder that you are seen. I've dealt with anxiety and depression in the past, and though I wasn't triggered, it did leave me sad and disturbed. I focus particularly on reaching reluctant, struggling, and English-language-learning readers by packing my books with lots of action and high-interest topics to keep them turning pages.M. Ballantyne and the Nineteenth-Century Robinsonade", Children's Literature Association Quarterly, 13 (4): 169–175, doi: 10. It was the inspiration for William Golding's dystopian novel Lord of the Flies (1954), which inverted the morality of The Coral Island; in Ballantyne's story the children encounter evil, but in Lord of the Flies evil is within them. It's not a fast-paced book, and for some I think it could be very difficult to read, but the raw emotions, and the messy, real life in it are so well written.

Despite having enjoyed The Coral Island many times as a child, Golding strongly disagreed with the views that it espoused, and in contrast Lord of the Flies depicts the English boys as savages themselves, [67] who forget more than they learn, unlike Ballantyne's boys. Jack also makes an appearance in Lord of the Flies as Jack Merridew, representing the irrational nature of the boys. This book holds a lot of triggers, but it was kind of nice to see them presented in a more clean way. Hammerhead sharks rule a cascading chain of extraordinary creatures, from eagle rays to reef sharks, as the sound of courting humpback whales reverberates through the deep. I second-guessed myself a few times and Sara did a really neat job of bringing all the pieces together in the end.The three boys sail to the island of Mango, where a missionary has converted some of the population to Christianity.
