Winner of the John Newbery Medal, Island of the Blue Dolphins tells the story of a young Indian girl named Karana who gets left behind on a beautiful island. The island itself looks like a fish and it’s surrounded by wonderful sea creatures like dolphins, otters and sea elephants. While the island is beautiful, Karana is alone and has to fend for herself. She has to do everything on her own, including making a home, finding food, creating weapons and even fighting off wild dogs. All the while she has to patiently wait for someone to rescue her from the Island of Blue Dolphins.
Island of the Blue Dolphins combines both the beautiful landscape and nature created by author Scott O’Dell with the harsh realities that the novel’s young heroine faces. It’s because of this contrast and deep storytelling that this novel not only won the Newbery Medal, but also has been a standard in school classrooms and reading programs.
