Spartan and his three friends love discovery, and Spartan's latest finding is that of an ancient book that speaks of aliens. No sooner than Spartan explains about aliens, a small glowing green egg appears and begins communicating with the youngsters. Once outside the green egg becomes a talking space capsule that transports the four adventurers to the Amazon rainforest. There they appreciate the native beauty, the variety of animals, and the Amazon Indians, learning all about their customs. They face many little adventures and then discover a camp of loggers who plan to destroy the rainforest (a very solid environmental discussion!), and to save the fallen trees the quartet places fluid on the stumps that makes them grow back so fast that the new trees destroy the equipment the loggers are using. At this point a green Spirit Protector of the Forest appears in the sky and issues a warning to the loggers, makes everyone apologize and then is off. The youngsters reenter the green egg space ship and return home, wiser about the world and the environment and their friendship!
It is refreshing to see books for young adults that are not only art pieces and terrific adventure tales but that also carry valuable lessons they won't soon forget. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, August 13
This is a wonderful children's book. It's about Spartan and his friends. It is the debut book in a series of ten adventures with Spartan, his three friends and his dog. They made contact with some alien explorers with the power of their minds, through an egg-shaped spaceship. The spaceship was actually an alien being. The alien becomes their friend and is called Egg. They go on an exciting and educational journey to the Rainforest.Their mission is to gain and share knowledge of the universe with others. I loved this book because it encourages children to let their minds explore and use their imagination. The illustrations in this book were magnificent. The book is an interesting and educational book. I found myself sad at times and laughing at others. There is so much to be learned of the Amazon's way of life. Every tree that is cut down must be replaced. Such wonderful lessons and yet it is very interesting and a fun read. Children need to use their minds to grow. Imagination is a wonderful thing and so much can be done with it.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
I was given a complimentary copy of SPARTAN & THE GREEN EGG by the author, for this honest review.
This is the debut book of a ten part series. I can't wait to read more from this series. Whenever I read a children's book for review, I give the book to my kids to read to see whether they will enjoy it or not. My children fell in love with this book. I was happy that after reading this book, they had questions about the environment. Even my husband became curious and read the book.
I highly recommend this book.
This book is about Spartan and his friends going on a adventure i their imaginations in the big round thing called egg.
the pictures were awesome and they were one of the best parts of the book.i like the pictures with just juma and yara because I like their regalia's and I really like the logo for the book.
My favourite part was when they met the two native children juma and yara. they were fun and I learned a lot from them about their people.
It made me sad when they where cutting down the trees but it made me laugh when they kicked the loggers butts.
I learned that you have to plant another tree every time you cut down a tree.we learned many many things about the Amazons way of life.
I think that lots of kids would like it. it's a great story with a good message and Nabila Khashoggi is a awesome writer!
Spartan and the Green Egg was a wonderful book full of adventure and beautiful illustrations! I felt myself completely drawn into the story as Spartan and his friends set of into the unknown.
Spartan, his three friends, and his dog, Grimm, travel the Universe. The mission of this talented team is to gain and share knowledge of their amazing discoveries.
Their expeditions are made even more exciting through the use of new technology and cool gadgets, provided by their new friend, who goes by the name of Egg.
In This book A Trip to the Rainforest, the team’s introduction to the rainforest and all its wonders is made even more fun by the company of two Native Amazonian Indians who introduce them to their way of life.Read more ›
