The Swiss Family Robinson; or Adventures in a Desert Island
Johann David Wyss German pronunciation: [ˈjoːhan ˈdaːfɪt ˈviːs] (28 May 1743 – 11 January 1818) is best remembered for his book The Swiss Family Robinson (Der schweizerische Robinson). It is said that he was inspired by Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, but wanted to write a story from which his own children would learn, as the father in the story taught important lessons to his children. The Swiss Family Robinson was first published in 1812 and translated into English two years later. It has since become one of the most popular books of all time.
