New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/14/2014 -- In Book 2 “The Reefs of Mindoro Island,” the team of explorers visits Mindoro, the seventh-largest island in the Philippine archipelago where thousands of miles of precious coral reefs, abundant with wildlife, are in danger.
Spartan and his friends face a challenging mission; to stop some reckless and avaricious fishermen from blowing up the very fragile coral reefs with explosives. They befriend a brave young girl from the traditional Iraya Mangyan tribe, and are presented with an obstacle: in order to save paradise, they must take a huge risk.
The beautifully illustrated book by Manual Cadag, brings a comic book feel with brightly colored drawings of the coral reefs. Author Khashoggi continues her theme of environmental concern with an easy-to-understand story that will delight and educate children ages 5 to 10.
