OVERVIEW: (FROM GOODREADS)
Spartan, his three friends, and his dog, Grimm, as they travel the Universe. The mission of this talented team is to gain and share knowledge of their amazing discoveries. With the power of their minds, they made contact with a race of alien explorers, who communicate with them via an egg-shaped spaceship that is itself an organic alien being. Their expeditions are made even more exciting through the use of new technology and cool gadgets, provided by their new friend, who goes by the name of Egg. In Book 1, A Trip to the Rainforest, the team’s introduction to the rainforest and all its wonders is made even more fun by the company of two native Amazonian Indians. Their extraordinary visit is not without a few close calls. After an eye-opening experience with a mysterious Shaman, their own troubles seem to pale in comparison to what they learn. The rainforest is in danger of vanishing, and all its creatures and plant life are at risk of extinction. With the help of the Green Egg’s out-of-this-world technology, the team is able to put a big dent into the path of destruction and re-new hope for the survival of the rainforest.

This is a wonderful children's book. It's about Spartan and his friends. It is the debut book in a series of ten adventures with Spartan, his three friends and his dog. They made contact with some alien explorers with the power of their minds, through an egg-shaped spaceship. The spaceship was actually an alien being. The alien becomes their friend and is called Egg. They go on an exciting and educational journey to the Rainforest.Their mission is to gain and share knowledge of the universe with others. I loved this book because it encourages children to let their minds explore and use their imagination. The illustrations in this book were magnificent. The book is an interesting and educational book. I found myself sad at times and laughing at others. There is so much to be learned of the Amazon's way of life. Every tree that is cut down must be replaced. Such wonderful lessons and yet it is very interesting and a fun read. Children need to use their minds to grow. Imagination is a wonderful thing and so much can be done with it. Every child should have this book.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
