Synopsis: Embark on an exciting adventure with Maya and Filippo as they travel around the globe on board the Fun Princess - a cruise ship full of surprises. Discover their fascinating ports of call, join them in activities at sea and explore the remarkable world they create for themselves through their thoughts and feelings.

The children dock in Christchurch. Before getting off the ship, at the youth club, they draw things they would like to see in the future. Their fellow passengers think Maya and Filippo are crazy until all of them see some things they had never expected.

Thoughts: **I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.**

Maya, Filippo, their parents, and their cat Otello live on a cruise ship called the Fun Princess. This is the story of their trip to Christchurch, New Zealand, also known as the Garden City. Part of the message of this book is to always believe that anything is possible.

Lots of good information provided in a fun way for young children. Every page has bright colorful illustrations to keep their attention as well. There is also a short quiz at the end of the book to promote comprehension, as well as some additional facts to encourage further learning.

This series of books is so fun, and so educational.

My rating: Four stars
