Tsunami is finally going home to the kingdom of the sea. But she doesn't know what mysterious things have been happening, and Queen Coral, Tsunami's mother has had her daughters mysteriously destroyed in their eggs. Tsunami is determined to save the last surviving egg and discovers secrets even her mother didn't know of.
I like the mysteries, they are very strange and can be a bit spooky at times, but also a story filled with magic and fun. I can't wait for the next book, I just finished Escaping Peril. I really want a book about Kinkajou.
I think that this book is a bit scary and readers should be prepared. Also, beware of enchanted statues.
Bah Bah Buuuuumm!
Really after she leaves you with a Bah Bah Buuuuumm I am not sure what else I can say, haha.
A few things...the world building for The Kingdom of The Sea is fantastic. Anytime a young reader can fully visualize the world they are reading about and get excited about it you know you have a winner. One of my favorite things about this series in fact is it's ease at pulling in reluctant readers and turning them into book-a-holics.
I like that in this series each book gives us the point of view of a different Dragonet, but continues with the main original characters each fighting their own battles and working together to discover their world and find their way.
As with the first book there are some moments that may be more difficult for sensitive readers, particularly one moment that involves Tsunami's father. There are not too many scary moments so don't let that keep you from getting this book, but you might have a moment where your reader needs to talk to you about what is happening. Of course if they are anything like my MG reader, they will want to talk your ear off about all these books regardless of any scary moments, these are books I find that readers just HAVE to share!
This is a great book for Middle Grade readers, particularly reluctant readers. The books are both fun, with sarcastic and witty characters, they are balanced with poignant moments and battles. I do recommend that they be read in order, you will be missing out on important facts by reading them out of order. A great addition to any teachers classroom library!
