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.


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...
