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...

    I don't believe in hunting for sport. However, hunting for survival, and with due respect for the animal (quickest death you can give)-I have no issue with, nor if you're hunting to eliminate a legitimate threat (ex. rabid coyote).

    I never knew you, Never once gazed upon your face, Never heard your voice, the sound of your laughter You never passed me by in the hallways- Or maybe you did, but we wouldn’t remember. I was a freshman, you a senior. A soccer player, while you were in the marching band That October night, when the call went out, All I knew was your name The name of someone who I shared a building with for months, Yet our paths were never to meet. When the school fell silent for many days, When no one spoke a word, the air dense, heavy, I couldn’t share in the pain of your friends, your family Body numb at the sight of your flower-strewn car spot, Limbs frozen, mouth choked as the school came together as one, Flickering candles resisting the bitter bite of the wind. Fly high, brother. For you may be gone, but you are a Thunderbird, and we will never forget.

    It's OK if you're doing it for food, and you're killing animals that there are plenty of (deer for example)
