Book Review

Publisher's Note:

One day a great storm rips across the island and the waves pull Andee out to sea. In their dinghy, in the storm, his parents are lost forever. Tingo and Tango save Andee and he becomes one with his new dolphin family. Little does he know - he is the Chosen One.…

Andee the Aquanaut

by Simon J House

Overall Book Review:

As ‘Protector of all marine life and Guardian of the Sea’ Andee the Aquanaut takes us through an ocean full of adventures, all aimed at helping children learn to be wise stewards of the sea. From being adopted by a dolphin family, being chased by giant pre-historic fish, befriending not only a jelly fish but a mermaid as well, Andee has quite the adventurous life to introduce us to.

Andee the Aquanaut: Guardian of the Great Sea by Simon J. House was a fast-paced book with colorful illustrations throughout that would be a great introduction for young readers on doing their part to protect the environment. It went through the typical situations of poaching, dolphins getting caught in nets, and fishing exotic and rare animals, but it also included a lot of action and adventure which will make it appealing to all ages and both boys and girls.

About the Reviewer

I remember as a young girl sneaking out of my bedroom to read by the hall light my parents left on, just so I could finish an exciting book. I’ve always loved books and reading is somewhat of a passion for me–something I’m passing on to my kids. I have four children and I have a hard time making them turn out the light when they say, “But I just got to the good part”.
