Adventures of Edwin and Albert: The Missing Crystals by Mariah Sebastien and Atticus Sebastien is a children’s adventure story. At 80 years old, Edwin is setting off on his very last trip in a spaceship and, as the journey begins, so does a new one as Edwin starts to reminisce about his life, his most favorite adventures, all the way back to when he first set foot inside a spaceship. The young Edwin had always known, deep down, that there was life elsewhere and one day he discovered the truth. In one minute that would change the course of his entire life, Edwin finds a new friend, Albert, and helps him to save Albert’s home planet, Sepheri, from dying. They need crystals and off they set on an adventure that will pit them against smugglers, pirates and many more dangers before they can get the crystals. Can they do it in time or will Planet Sepheri disappear forever?
Adventures of Edwin and Albert: The Missing Crystals was written by Mariah Sebastien and her 6th-grade son, Atticus Sebastien. I love the fact that her son had input into this story; it shows great imagination and a flair for creativity. This is a great adventure story for kids, with the aliens, the spaceship, the smuggler, pirates and everything that children love to read about. The characters are wonderful, developed really well, and written in a way that the target audience will have no trouble identifying with them and wanting to tag along on their adventures. The way that this book has been written ensures that the reader is, in fact, pulled into the story. This is more than just a tale though; it also teaches children that working together is the best way forward; the only way to become a real achiever. Great story, and I look forward to the next adventure!
