S.H.E.L.L. – The Horse Awakens by Chris White
About The Book
‘Star Wars’ meets ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ in this sparkling, action-packed, highly original galactic adventure with a feel-good vibe. Sure to inspire young readers to be their own person; to embrace team values; to balance thinking and feeling with
action; and to reach for the good in all their endeavours.
S.H.E.L.L. – Episode One – THE HORSE AWAKENS is wonderfully cinematic and world-building, and contains characters that will make a lasting impression.
It’s an action-packed, rip-roaring adventure story about a bunch of action heroes who have one thing in common – They all have shells.
When the universe goes crazy, the team assembles to find out who, or what, is making the population of every planet act in a really grumpy mood.
Humorously illustrated throughout; yet SHELL is filled with serious themes about fitting-in and thinking for yourself.
Let’s be honest, what attracts me of a book is not the plot, but the cover. Because if the cover doesn’t shout at me, even if the book is great I will never discover it, so, this one had a special flare that made me want to know more about it. Full of weird characters in the cover and bright colors, it makes any reader wanting to know what the story is about and what is “SHELL” (Space Heroes Exploring Lost Lands).
I have to say that we really enjoyed the read, my little one is starting to get used to read so, I was looking for something that make him laugh and to keep him interested in the plot, this one was a hit. With original characters, full of action and situations to make anyone think deeply, this is a great read for reluctant and addictive readers.
The original illustrations inside the book make the reader fully understand the weird characters and their situations; I loved them! I think this book will be re-read a lot of times and we can’t wait to discover the next episode of SHELL!
