In this wordless graphic novel, a galactic Robinson Crusoe is stranded on a desert planet, where he survives on what coconuts he can find. Until one day a delectable croissant, perfectly wrapped in plastic, lands on the shore of the beach, a gift from the gods. There's only one problem: Robinson's companion, Friday, also loves baked goods--and so begins a wild chase, the likes of which the solar system has never seen. This exhilarating, humorous take on a classic tale will delight children even as it introduces them to a seminal work of Western literature. The lack of text also means prereaders will be able to return to the story time and again without an adult's help. "En esta novela grafica sin palabras, un Robinson Crusoe espacial esta varado en un planeta desierto en el cual sobrevive comiendo cuantos cocos puede conseguir. Hasta que un dia un delicioso cruasan, perfectamente envuelto en plastico, cae en la orilla de la playa, un manjar de los dioses. Existe solo una complicacion: a Viernes, el companero de Robinson, tambien le encantan los panes--y asi se desencadena una espectacular persecucion que jamas viese aquel sistema solar. Esta excitante, humoristica recreacion de una historia clasica deleitara a los ninos a la misma vez que les presenta una obra fundamental de la literatura occidental. La ausencia de texto le permite a los prelectores seguir la historia sin la intermediacion de un adulto."
