PREFACE.


THE kind reception given to the system of writing in words of one syllable has encouraged the Author to add the popular story of "The Swiss Family Robinson" as a twin book to "Robinson Crusoe." The monosyllablic rule has been strictly adhered to throughout, the only exception occurring necessarily in the title of the book itself. The Author's object has been to provide "a field of exercise for a child who has just learnt to conquer words; and it is a great point in all teaching to let the first independent exercise be one in which victory is really to be won by moderate effort."

This work was published before January 1, 1923, and is in the public domain worldwide because the author died at least 100 years ago.
