However, it goes where no kids' book has gone before. Woven into its action-packed plot are messages on conservation, sustainability and healthy eating habits.
Lessons on water purification, composting, bacteria use, eating a rainbow color of colorful food, carrots as toothbrushes and dates as electrolytes are revealed to the reader through the eyes of sixth grader Big B "Brett" Harrington as his city-life views and experiences are contrasted and challenged by the Island's environmentally-conscious culture.
"Our goal with Curse of the Bone Pirates is to two fold: Teach kids about the threats to our environment and get them to take action to improve our world at home, at school and in their neighborhoods," said Brian Machovina, author and Nui president and co-founder. "We also want to give them a chance at some serious fun and imagination by taking them on the road trip of a lifetime to Nui Island."
From the sale of each copy of Curse of the Bone Pirates, Nui donates $1 to support Healthy Child Healthy World and Surfers for Cetaceans.
