When Andi is engulfed by a wave, she finds herself transported to an underwater world called Corallai. There she meets Aquanna, a creature who is part fish and part human.
Aquanna tells Andi that it is her destiny to help preserve the oceans and all the life within. Andi learns all about the work the various inhabitants do to ensure the survival of the ocean’s ecosystem, and explores this new, spectacular world.
Ocean health is a primary concern in this book, and Michelle handles it very carefully for children.
Andi visits the underwater kingdom and gets a solid education that sets the direction for her life. Andi learns about the struggles various underwater plants and animals have coping with environmental pollution, over-fishing by humans, and other assorted ills.
I greatly appreciate the way Michelle writes her stories to stimulate conversation between adults and children.
I award 5 stars to Corallai!
This is the second book about ocean health for children by Michelle. The first is “Rory Aqua Adventure Man”, I reviewed it here.
