We read this as a class in grade five or six, I think. I remember enjoying it. ( )

Review: "The Cay" by Theodore Taylor is a book that takes place in the Caribbean on a boat that gets raided for merchandise. This story follows the two survivors on one of the lifeboats, Philip and Timothy.
When the Torpedo hits the ship young Philip (Caucasian) wakes up on a lifeboat with Timothy an old African American worker. As Timothy and Philip talk Philip soon notices something is wrong with his eyes and Timothy says it'll go away but when Philip wakes up he can't see a thing confirming he's blind. Timothy soon notices an island or a cay in the distance. They soon make their way to the cay and start working however life on the island gets hard because of Philips's racism and not wanting to help. Before he had no sympathy for Timothy but eventually strike up a friendship. After a big hurricane hits the cay Timothy dies trying to keep Philip safe. Philip builds a grave for Timothy and soon him and stew cat get saved by a navy vessel.

Opinion: The Cay is an emotion pact book about Timothy and his parental relationship with young Philip who must unlearn what he has been taught by others before. In almost any survival book the protagonist comes back to society having learned a new kind of self-reliance that most likely cant be learned by a modern civilized area, and this is shown to be true in this novel. Theodore Taylor makes this easily understandable that Philips's life will never be the same and will change his views after spending time with Timothy. The impression of Timothy's character had an even greater impact on Philip than the survival experience its self.

I really liked Theodore Taylor's book 'The Cay'. I enjoyed how the author was able to put 'The Cay' into a narrated view of a boy's crazy life during World War II. The author also used figurative language throughout many scenes. These details made me as the reader picture what the characters were going through. I noticed the two main characters had a very strong connection. When they were separated, I felt for them both. Overall, I enjoyed this sad and fascinating book very much. Five out of five stars. ( )

I follow Hatchet read aloud, with The Cay. They are similar stories in survival, however, Brian in Hatchet is by himself in Canada, and Phillip is with Timothy, an elderly black man, and Stew Cat, a cat, on and island in the Cays. I thought the book was ok, but my students really enjoy it. It could be the awful Norwegian/West Indies accent I have to produce while reading for Timothy. ( )

Mary Purucker (KLIATT Review, July 2005 (Vol. 39, No. 4))
Twelve-year-old Philip's ordeal as a castaway after the ship he was on was torpedoed in 1942 has never lost its appeal as a strong survival tale with two strong characters. When German submarines increase their activity off the coast of Venezuela, Philip's mother insists that the two of them leave the island of Curacao where his father works for an oil refinery, but she refuses to fly and they take passage on a ship. Not many days go by before they are blown out of the water and Philip finds himself on a raft with a gigantic elderly black man and the ship's cat. His mother's prejudices at first make him uncomfortable with Timothy, but he learns to love and respect him. Suffering from a severe blow to his head, in a few days Philip becomes totally blind and totally dependent on Timothy. When they finally land on a small island, a cay, Timothy teaches him the skills to survive even if he is left alone. Michael Boatman narrates in a straightforward way, easily giving Phillip a slight Southern accent and Timothy's voice a West Indian flavor. The pacing and timing are perfect as the pair battle the elements, get to know each other, and prepare for potential rescue. Category: Fiction Audiobooks. KLIATT Codes: J*--Exceptional book, recommended for junior high school students. 2005 (orig. 1969), Listening Library, 3 cds. 3 hrs.; Vinyl; plot, author, reader notes., $30.00. Ages 12 to 15.
