About The Book

Join Flora and Fauna, the world’s GREATEST explorers, as they hang up their ice picks, put down their rucksacks and enjoy a well-deserved holiday. When the sea turtles stop showing up to lay their eggs in the golden sands, however, Flora and Fauna are called into action. They must sail to the reef to investigate, but it looks like an ENORMOUS storm is brewing…With flaps and paper effects throughout, who knows what WILD creatures they’ll find along the way.

My Thoughts

As the title says, this is an adventure, the adventure of Flora and Fauna; the world’s greatest explorers! It is not always easy to teach little ones interesting facts about nature, so the easy way is to teach them with an engaging and colorful story, to keep them interested with small details to make them learn new things.
This book has all the ingredients to make any child interested in turtles and the sea; at the same time it teaches our little ones of the danger of plastic and not protecting the environment for the sea creatures.
This is a book with flaps and beautiful illustrations, easy to get lost in the details and the textures of the drawings, the story makes the reader part of the adventure, the mystery to discover new things and creatures; and in the end to find the turtles! I loved the detail of the names of the characters, Flora and Fauna, or the name of the boat they are traveling; The Friend-ship! 
There are so many details in this book that we will re-read it a few times at home to discover everything with my little one, this is one of his favorite books right now!
This is a great book to enjoy looking at the sea and travel to this wild adventure!
