The Book

 Ocean and his little brother, Kingston, are off into a wonderful adventure.  They are exploring the beautiful Hawaiian island of Maui to find a rare sunrise shell for their mom's birthday present.  

Along the way they experience the sights and sounds of nature found in Hawaii.  The reader feels they are participating along with the boys as the two try their best to complete their mission with success.  Will the two be victorious and bring happiness to their mom as they present her with an extraordinary beautiful sunrise shell to delight in on her special day? 

Carlos and Alexa PenaVega, a celebrity couple, known for their starring roles in Big Time Rush and Spy Kids, respectively, debut their first picture book. It was inspired by their first born son, Ocean, and their home in Hawaii.  

The adventure pulls each reader into the search and Ocean's World provides an educational element as well.  The couple has added fun facts along the way such as:  how high a dolphin can jump, how long it takes a sea-turtle egg to hatch, the names of different types of shells, and showcases various types of animals that are found in the ocean as the boys comb the beach, surf the waves and snorkel, just to cite a few.  

The illustrations are vibrant, colourful and marry with the text perfectly. They are spot on for that targeted age group - 4-8 years. The book is up-beat and fun and kids ( and adults ) will love it.
