Author: Mark Crilley

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 sorry, but there's one thing I want to ask you, do you think it's right for a 1 year old to have a boyfriend? I'm sure most of us would say no. This is certainly similar for people younger than 16, 17 or 18, to have a boyfriend. There is truly a correct age based on the way you find yourself to be mature enough, usually 16-18 years old.  Based on when I was young, though, I had a bunch of friends who had boyfriends when we were in Gr 3. Surprising? Well, not really. It's usually just a minor romantic interest and eventually, you'll move on from your boyfriend because of boredom or old variety. Suffice to say, it's wrong to have a boyfriend at a young age, such as ten because most of us, at that age, were still immature enough to handle the responsibility of having the opposite gender as a romantic interest. This is my perspective, if you cannot handle it, don't ask for it.

    I upgraded from 7. I really enjoy the start menu. The look and feel is nice. I like the apps available. Photos is a lot like Apple's iPhoto. I'm not too keen on it, but I'm glad the option to browse files is still readily there, and photos can be opened with other programs instead. Mail is mail. I prefer the more standard layout of my iCloud mail though. The multiple desktops, microsoft account login, notifications, and readily available search bar are great features. Microsoft Edge needs more help than internet explorer did. I've had to end a lot of tasks because it seems to run more in the background, but that's fine.  Overall it's been worth the upgrade.
