Explorer Academy: The Star Dunes by Trudi Trueit, is the fourth book in the popular fact-based fiction series (National Geographic Kids' Under the Stars; March 2020, ages 8-12). 

This book encourages kids to use their imaginations and allows them to travel from the comfort and safety of home.

Deemed "Captivating" by the editors at Parenting.com and "Exciting, fast paced" by Booklist, the series is filled with thrilling adventures, high-tech cadets, cool science, far-away lands, and codes to crack.

Follow 12-year-old Cruz Coronado during his time at the prestigious Explorer Academy, where he and 23 kids from around the globe are training to become the next generation of great explorers. In addition to making new friends and attending cool classes, Cruz must also work to unlock clues to his family’s shadowy past if he is to solve the mystery of his mother’s untimely death.    In this exciting follow-up to The Double Helix, a major discovery catapults Cruz and the Explorer Academy team into the limelight and they head off to Africa.  Cruz and his fellow recruits tackle challenging missions to dispense life-saving medications to gorillas, thwart pangolin poachers and capture images of the last known cheetahs in Namibia — all the while discovering that protecting the world’s threatened species is dangerous business!  

After yet another strike from Nebula, someone close to Cruz ends up on the brink of death, leaving the ship in turmoil and Cruz and his team down a major player.  The discovery of his mom’s next clue leads Cruz to a vast desert — and just when he thinks he’s run out of leads for solving the mystery of her tragic disappearance, an unlikely ally helps him pursue another piece of the ongoing puzzle. Can Cruz and his team stay one step ahead of Nebula and find the next piece of the hidden cipher?

With four critically acclaimed titles in this series now available, two companion nonfiction activity books and literally hours and hours of videos, games, and info on real-life explorers at ExplorerAcademy.com , Explorer Academy is the perfect way to keep kids learning, reading and engaged. 

An illustrated spread from The Star Dunes can be viewed here and the first chapter from The Star Dunes can be read here.

***A perfect pick for World Ocean Day (June 8th) and Shark Week in July***. 

We've really been missing our trips to the Aquarium during the stay-at-home order.  This book encourages her curiosity and love of sea creatures while we are staying at home.
