Kobee Manatee: Shipwreck Sea Friends

“Kobee and his ocean pals are full of fun, adventure, and inspiration. They give the reader a better sense of the magic and mystery within our ocean world.” —Fabien Cousteau, oceanographic explorer and conservationist

Kobee Manatee and his pals, Tess the seahorse and Pablo the hermit crab are en route to Puerto Rico to explore the SS Antonio López, a historic shipwreck from the 1898 Spanish-American War. The ship sits underwater about seven miles west of San Juan. On their Caribbean adventure, they meet several new sea friends, including a whale shark, an octopus, and a moray eel. But as Kobee and his buddies begin their thrilling exploration of the wreck, Kobee gets trapped inside the sunken ship! Can Tess, Pablo, and the new sea friends rescue Kobee? Children are sure to enjoy this spectacular tale loaded with surprises, fun, and exciting facts all about Caribbean reef fish.

These illustrations were absolutely beautiful, fun and just made the story perfect. My youngest daughter loved the animals and thought they looked friendly. The additional facts mixed into the story made this a fun way to learn something as well as being entertained. The simplistic story made it easy for my daughter to read to her sister. My girls loved showing off they knew the names of all the animals. I always let them ‘review’ these books because I value their opinion and think they have better authority than me in this genre. They loved it and it made them want to visit the local Sea Life Aquarium so I know what’s coming up on our weekend activity list.

 Thank you to Netgalley and Thompson Mill Press for allowing me to review this book.
