Escape Galápagos

As Ezzy Skylar’s mother lay dying, her father promised to take Ezzy and her younger brother, Luke, to all of the places on his wife’s wonder-list, starting with the Galápagos Islands. There’s just one problem: while Luke loves all living things, Ezzy freaks out around wild animals. For her family, Ezzy must face her fears and walk with iguanas, swim with sea lions and sharks, and pretend to dance among blue-footed boobies. Things take a dangerous turn when hijackers take over their cruise ship. Ezzy, Luke, and Aiden, a teen they meet on the ship, are stranded on remote and wild Isabela Island, where an erupting volcano adds to the action and adventure. Ezzy must find bravery she never knew she had and rely on her little brother’s help to make their way across the island in an attempt to rescue a ship full of tourists and the animals of the Galápagos.

    I’m one of the lucky ones who has had a chance to see this book before publication. It’s got adventure, likeable and convincing characters, more than a touch of humor, and a setting that can’t be beat. No one is better than Ellen Prager at bringing the natural world to life. This is almost as good as going back to the Galapagos, one of the coolest places I’ve ever visited.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Ellen

    A fun fast read for adventure and animal-loving young readers. Humor and action combine with learning about nature and the wild Galapagos Islands. Teenage insecurities and family ties add to the story along with an active volcano, snake-dropping hawk and more. Kids will love it, parents will enjoy reading along, and educators can get in on the game, especially with a section in the back: Real or Made-up!

    My grandson, Hugo and I were very honoured to be test readers for this book. Hugo, who is 9 and plans to be a marine biologist and conservationist, is a huge fan of all Ellen Prager’s books – both scientific and for young readers. I learned a lot from this book and we enjoyed some great humour an excellent plot, believable characters and wonderful descriptions of the Galapagos. Whenever it was time to stop reading till next time, he begged for just a few more pages! He just loved this one – so did I. Can’t wait to see the final version.
