About The Book:
With a friendly alien spaceship called Egg always close by, Spartan, his three friends, and his dog, Grimm, continue their adventures traveling the Universe. In Book 2, The Reefs of Mindoro Island, the team of explorers goes to the South China Sea to visit the beautiful isle of Mindoro. It is the seventh-largest island in the Philippine archipelago where thousands of miles of precious coral reefs, abundant with wildlife, are in danger. Spartan and his friends face a challenging mission; to stop some reckless and avaricious fishermen from blowing up the very fragile coral reefs with explosives. They befriend a brave young girl from the traditional Iraya Mangyan tribe, and are presented with an obstacle: in order to save paradise, they must take a huge risk.
There are so many wonderful things about this book that I don't know where to start! First of all, the illustrations are phenomenal. I would get so distracted while I was reading because the illustrations just pop out and capture your attention. The book has so many fun adventures that my daughter and I read the book and then reread it. The group of friends in the story are funny, clever and work well together as a team.
This book is so creative in the way it teaches us about taking care of the environment. This story is so interesting and creative that it will capture the attention of younger and older children. I am happy to have had the chance to review this book and I hope the author continues to write more in this series.
