This fun, new children’s book will go a long way towards teaching kids about the threats to our environment and getting them to take action at home, at school and in their community. Curse of the Bone Pirates is set in a place deep in the South Pacific Ocean on exotic, fictional Nui Island. It has everything other books like it have: adventure, wonderment and sinister and lovable characters.

However, it goes one step further. Woven into the plot are lessons on conservation, environmentalism and healthy eating. These lessons are revealed through the eyes of 6th grader “Big B” Brett Harrington, challenging his city-life views while he adapts to the island’s environmentally conscious culture.

My daughter and I read this book together and we loved it! Not only was it a great way to share an educational book with her but it was a special bonding time for us as we each took turns reading a chapter. My daughter loved the Big B character and all the adventures.

Welcome to Nui Island – An Evil Force Is Destroying The Natural Wonders Of Nui Island, And It’s Up To Three New Friends To Solve The Mystery

When Big B is dragged from his comfortable life and close friends in Chicago by his grandfather’s mysterious affliction, he’s sure he’s going to have the worst summer ever. But soon after arriving in the tropical paradise of Nui Island, he is caught in a web of danger and intrigue.

The Maemae reef is dying, his grandfather’s brilliant mind has been infected, and creepy Island legends are coming to life. Big B and his new friends, Sam and Nalu, rely on wit, courage, and strength to unravel Nui’s ancient mysteries. What they uncover will help them save the island, restore his grandfather’s soul, and break the curse of the Bone Pirates.

With a captivating plot, fascinating characters, and an important ecological message, Curse of the Bone Pirates: Nui Island Eco-Logical Adventures will haunt and delight young readers.

Brought to you by Nui, which is an innovative company wholly devoted to the healthy future of youth. By creating truly healthy nutrient-rich hybrid beverages and foods to fuel growing bodies, producing exciting eco-logicial adventures to expand the horizons of exploring minds, and providing opportunities to give back through charities and to network with kids worldwide, Nui supports the bodies, minds, and hearts of youth today and future generations to follow.

Nui is a healthy kids lifestyle brand and $1 from each copy of this book sold goes directly to children’s health and environmental charities.
