Our fourth series installment! Pub Date: September 28, 2021
Kobee Manatee and his seafaring pals are en route to Belize in Central America. Kobee wants to help his cousin Quinn with her new all-veggie underwater café called Quinn’s Seagrass Café. However, they quickly encounter several obstacles along their 500-mile Caribbean journey from the Cayman Islands. The sea friends confront a strained loggerhead turtle, a giant Portuguese Man-of-War, and a venomous scorpionfish along the way. Then their venture takes an unforeseen turn as Pablo the hermit crab plunges into the abyss of the Great Blue Hole! Can Kobee and his buddies save Pablo? A Caribbean adventure loaded with fun, surprises, and facts about climate change, and the danger plastic pollution is having in our oceans and on our coral reefs.
“Kobee Manatee is a lovable and magnetic host, leading readers into the waters that cover 70% of the earth while opening young minds to the connections between human actions and marine ecosystems. Creating opportunities, which inspire love for our marine animals can cultivate an environmentally responsible conscience that can last a lifetime.”
– Dr. Tracy Fanara, Inspector Planet & NOAA Scientist
“A well-crafted, thoughtful, and well-illustrated addition to a noteworthy educational book series.”
Robert Scott Thayer presents an important environmental message in an engaging story with wonderful characters. Anyone who loves the ocean and wants to help save it should read Kobee Manatee: Climate Change and The Great Blue Hole Hazard. I’m looking forward to the next Kobee Manatee adventure.
