SuperSummary, a modern alternative to SparkNotes and CliffsNotes, offers high-quality study guides that feature detailed chapter summaries and analysis of major themes, characters, quotes, and essay topics.  This one-page guide includes a plot summary and brief analysis of The Swiss Family Robinson  by Johann David Wyss.

The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss is a book containing the fictional and episodic adventures of a family of six—a father, a mother, and four sons. The father’s name is William, and he is not only the brave, knowledgeable leader of the family, but also the narrator of the story. His wife, Elizabeth, is intelligent and resourceful, evidenced by the fact that she takes with them a magical bag full of supplies including sewing materials and seeds. She can also cook a meal out of almost everything, from porcupine to penguin.

William and Elizabeth’s oldest son, Fritz, is fifteen years old. While he’s intelligent like his mother, he’s also impetuous. He’s brave too, and accompanies William into potentially dangerous situations. After Fritz, there’s Ernest, who is thirteen years old. He’s even more intelligent than Fritz, but less active, and so he doesn’t go with William as often as Fritz does. Jack is the next oldest boy at eleven years old. Bold and thoughtless, Jack is quick-thinking. Franz, or Francis, is the youngest member of the Robinson family. He is only eight years old and typically stays with Elizabeth.

The Tomatometer rating – based on the published opinions of hundreds of film and television critics – is a trusted measurement of movie and TV programming quality for millions of moviegoers. It represents the percentage of professional critic reviews that are positive for a given film or television show.

Movies and TV shows are Certified Fresh with a steady Tomatometer of 75% or higher after a set amount of reviews (80 for wide-release movies, 40 for limited-release movies, 20 for TV shows), including 5 reviews from Top Critics.

The Swiss Family Robinson, like most of Walt Disney's screen versions of the children's classics, is good Disney and bad culture.
