Akiko in the Sprubly Islands Book Review

Akiko in the Sprubly Islands Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Gigantic Akiko-eating water snakes, deadly skugbit storms, strange empires and huge armies of tiny people. Oh my! What kind of adventure has Akiko gotten herself into on the Sprubly Islands?

Author: Mark Crilley

Akiko's last adventure in Akiko on the Planet Smoo had her facing pirates, monsters and lots of adventures. Things don't let up for the courageous nine year-old Earth girl as she and her friends Spuckler Boach, Mr. Beeba, Poog and Gax sail to the Sprubly Islands.


Stranded

Before she knows what's happening Akiko's flying boat has been sunk by a deadly Skugbit storm, she's been swallowed by a giant water snake and she's stranded on an island full of creepy creatures. If she's going to rescue Prince Froptoppit she'll need help. Will Queen Pwip help her? Or will the queen's army capture Akiko and her friends? Will she ever find her way through the Sprubly Islands?


A Fun Adventure

Akiko's adventures are great fun. She's always running into new people, strange critters and out of this world situations. The best part about the story is Mark Crilley's [kwlink 1599]artwork. He writes the stories and does the drawings of Akiko and her friends. Whenever something really cool is happening in the story he puts in pictures to show you what's going on. Whether it's Spuckler and Beeba shouting at each other or a picture of a strange new creature, it really brings the planet of Smoo and the Sprubly Islands to life.

    Akiko is a perfectly ordinary fourth grader. At least she was until she was chosen to save Prince...

    Where one teacher stands in front of 20 kids, each one having different strengths, different needs, different gifts, different dream. And then teach the same thing the same way? That's horrific.Curriculums are created by policy makers. Most of which have never taught a day in their life. Just obsessed with standardized tests. They think bubbling in a multiple choice question will determine success.

    The education system isn't there to create intelligent individuals and definitely not there to teach, it is there to create useful pawns for the elites, we are all brainwashed from day one. So yes I think they should change,  but they most likely won't.

    If you are a student in middle through high school these days you might  not feel like you are learning a lot of things that you will use after high school. The truth is, you aren't. Are they teaching you how to obtain money? How about  how to manage a check account? Or how about this are you learning how to handle a job interview in school. No? Maybe you have learned  one of them perhaps if you count elementary, but dude we're way past elementary and ever since the fith grade I aint lean nothing about anything i'l use outside of school since 5th grade. Oh wait, I DID learned something. I learned that half the stuff they teach us are not even on the tests we HAVE TO take. Probably because we should know the information already, but the thing is MOST of us in the U.S don't know half of it or care because it's all useless to us so it has to be re taught again. Some teachers are kind enough to re teach old lessons but  not all do, and I can't believe that i discovered that all it takes to make things right is for a student to confront a teacher in class to ask them to teach me things that we will use in our future, not yesterdays future. If no one does that IN CLASS, IN FRONT of the class. You are just one student, you might save yourself but not the others if you do this alone.. If other unsaved students slow down the class you won't learn a thing. What do you think? about this subject?
