Thoughts


‘Spartan & The Green Egg: The Poachers of Tiger Mountain” is the fourth book in the Spartan and the Green Egg series. Despite never reading the first three books, I went ahead and read only this one, it was very easy to understand the story without feeling like you are missing vital knowledge from the first books. This is a very fascinating story which offers a whole world of adventure for a group of kids. The kids are Explorer’s while the Green Egg is their ship. It is a fascinating ship, propelling them to their adventures faster than the speed of light! The kids develop different superpowers, which are actually provided by the Green Egg, during their different adventures.

At one point the Explorers travel to Bhutan in the Green Egg. Within a few minutes the kids are feeling the elements of the weather, seeing endangered animals, and almost being shot with an arrow while exploring a town they had mistaken for a ghost town. Soon, the kids realize there is an arrow-shooting tournament and festival happening in the town square. This is where the kids get to learn about a different culture, experience different and new food, and make new friends. 

While watching a play being put on by the villagers, they learn about how evil poachers are after two orphaned tiger cubs. It does not take long before the kids decide to do whatever they can to save the tigers and deliver them to Tiger Mountain. They must reach Tiger Mountain to escape the poachers. While on the mission they get help from each other and get help from their new friends in the Green Egg. 

This book is in the layout of a comic book. The book teaches children about courage, working together, Being open to new people and experiences, and to treat others with compassion. They get to learn about different countries, people, cultures, and endangered animals. Throughout the book, there are a lot of pictures which really draw you in and capture your full attention. It is very easy to read and follow along. It is appropriate for kids young or older. Your children can learn more about the explorers and also join the Explorer’s Club on the Spartan and the Green Egg website.
