About the Author:

Tim O’Shei is the author of more than 60 nonfiction books for kids and teens. He’s also a teacher, sports and entertainment journalist, and the founder of Live! Starring ... You!, a program where students interview people in the spotlight. He regularly visits schools around the country, teaching workshops and spreading his motto, “Write for your dreams.” He’s been featured on national television, including an appearance on the Travel Channel’s “Mysteries at the Museum.” Tim is a native of Buffalo, New York, where he lives with his wife and three children.

From Booklist:

Unabashedly aimed at armchair “survivors” only, this brief entry in the Prepare to Survive series blithely shows readers washed up alone on a tropical island how easy it is to find water, build a platform shelter, catch fish (or, failing that, bugs), start a fire, and contact rescuers. The frequent illustrations feature color photos of hunky men and members of the cast of the TV show Survivor, plus occasional simplified diagrams of a solar still, the correct way to escape quicksand, and the like. More practical advice about what to do when lost can be found online, in scouting manuals, and in handbooks like Guy Campbell’s The Boys’ Book of Survival(2007), but this will be good for quick flights of fancy. Grades 4-6. --John Peters
