Insu-Pu is a Robinsonade novel of the Kids' Wilderness Epic penned by Austrian writer Mira Lobe in 1947. It tells the tale of 11 Blitz Evacuees on a Deserted Island. Known mostly as one of the "inspirations" (in a Take That! sort of way) to the classic School Study Media favorite Lord of the Flies.

In Lobe's Deserted Island the kids get along quite well, and develop their own little society, complete with Bamboo Technology. Luckily, they are ultimately saved thanks to the help of the United States' president's grandson. Yes, it's that kind of book.
