If she's ever caught in a bad situation, Roxie knows what to do. She has memorized the book on survival, starting with the basic (challenging) instruction: Do not panic. But when Roxie ends up on an island with four unpleasant classmates, she is tested in her ability to survive. Especially when the classmates realize two robbers have made the island their hideout. How will the five survive? From adventures in unusual foods, to the injured rabbit noise made by kissing a wet hand, Roxie does not panic and manages to bring all home to safety. As delightful on the fifth read as it is on the first. By a Newbery Medal winner.
