My sister got this book at Barnes and Noble, and because she is soooo nice she let me read it first!!!! The book is actually a National Geographic book. So obviously, it’s clean. (Cause like ‘Duh!’ why would National Geographic not be clean.)

Anyways, the book was about this kid, who is going to the Explorer Academy, and is trying to figger-out why his  mother was killed. So it’s mystery/awesome I guess… mostly awesome though.  🙂

I thought the book was great and really enjoyed it; the only down side to me was the pictures. I am not a picture book kind-of-person so that was the only let down for me.

Over all, I loved everything but the pictures, and I totally think this book is kid-friendly. I highly suggest this book and series! -The Young Llama Reader.
