By Susan Keefe This review is from: Ti and the Magical Key: How it all began (Volume 1) (Paperback)
This story began a long, long time ago, when the high gods of the Mayans discovered that Kukulkan, the God of Wind was about to return. For the safety of their people, they decided they have to hide the magic key from him, and it was Itzamna’s job to work out how, and ensure its safety.
Then the story travels forward in time and we meet Ti, a young boy whose family have to go on a special journey. Taking only his precious golden shell which he loves to play, they leave their home to travel a great distance.
Eventually they arrive at a beautiful beach, there, Ti befriends Nuuk Ha a 95 year old turtle, and the pair discover they were destined to meet. From there, as their journey continues, a strong bond of friendship and courage is formed.
This book is visually stunning with beautiful illustrations which captured my Grandson’s imagination right from the start. However, that is not all, this story is also educational, teaching about the Mayan culture, the Riviera Maya, Mexico and turtles.
I look forward to reading their continuing adventures with my Grandsons.
