Akiko is a perfectly ordinary fourth grader with ordinary parents, ordinary friends and an ordinary life. At least she was until she was chosen to save Prince Froptoppit from the clutches of Alia Rellapor. Now she's an ordinary fourth grader on an extraordinary adventure on the alien planet Smoo.


The Akiko Series

Akiko and the Great Wall of Trudd is the third in the series that started with Akiko on the Planet Smoo and Akiko in the Sprubly Isles. Akiko's back with her friends - the adventurous Spucker, the brainy Mr. Beeba, the robot Gax and the mysterious floating purple thing named Poog.


A Bump in the Plan

The Great Wall of Trudd stands between them and their goal of rescuing Prince Froptoppit. On top of everything else, Akiko has to deal with a deadly stranger with a mysterious connection to her friends and a forgotten Smudko's restaurant. Akiko has to get past the wall, face the black-clad stranger and - most deadly of all - find out just what it is that goes into a Smud Burger.


The Bottom line

The adventures of Akiko are a great series of books for young readers and this one doesn't disappoint. It has action, comedy, adventure and more Smoo than you can shake a stick at. Akiko is a cool character and her buds Spuckler and Beeba are a hilarious pair. Mark Crilley, the author, does the artwork as well. You can see more of his work in the Akiko [kwlink 1988]comic books/kwlink> that come out every other month. If you're looking for a fun, quick read Akiko and the Great Wall of Trudd is perfect.

    I'm currently waiting to go take my written test and taking online practice tests in the mean time. I've never quite been in a huge rush to get mine, despite being 17 now. I never really needed my license until now. Don't fret too much over and just look at the extra time as an opportunity to study/practice more; truly make sure you're ready.
