Get the scoop on 10 year-old Akiko and her adventures in space with our review of Akiko and the Journey to Toog! - Page 2

Author: Mark Crilley

Akiko's a totally normal 10 year-old girl, but she's always ending up in the middle of intergalactic adventures with her friends Spuckler Boach, Mr. Beeba, Gax the robot and the weird purple Poog. From scaling mile-high walls to battling robo-bad-guys, her life is anything but normal and she's up to even more adventure in Akiko and the Journey to Toog. Here's our book review!

The Goods

All Akiko was doing was picking up a pack of gum when suddenly her friends show up with an emergency. Poog is in trouble! Before you can say Bubblicious, Akiko's flying off to the planet Toog for an adventure with weird aliens, old friends, mysteries and creepy villains. Can she save her friend Poog? Or will she get her brain melted by a planet full of purple aliens?

Picture Perfect

Not only are Akiko and her friends a blast, the author, Mark Crilley, is also a fab artist who does all the artwork for the book so it's packed with cool pics that show you exactly what the gross brain-melting aliens look like. It brings the adventure to life in this fun story and keeps you on your toes because brain-melting is no fun for anyone.


The Bottom Line

It's a goofy fun story that'll leave you diggin' the fact that your brain isn't porridge, as well as totally thrilled to join Akiko's outer space adventures. Now if only you had friends from outer space...

The better and more relevant question seems to be, how will civilization end? Or how will humans go extinct? I don't think it'll be a global nuclear war. I don't think it'll be global warming or the rising seas. Humans are incredibly adaptive and resilient. I think we're adaptive enough to work with most things the natural world throws at us. I just don't know that we can overcome our primitive hierarchical tendencies and instincts to the point that we can prevent ourselves from destroying ourselves.  *in a rising tone* ...Destroying ourselves with global nuclear war!
