Kobee Manatee®: A Wild Weather Adventure

by Robert Scott Thayer

Kobee Manatee® wants to surprise his sister Kim, who lives in the Bahamas, on her birthday. But it won’t be easy to get there from Key West, Florida. Kobee must swim across the mighty Atlantic Ocean and into the strong Gulf Stream current. Not only that, it’s hurricane season! Can Kobee and his friends, Tess the seahorse and Pablo the hermit crab, travel safely through all of the wild tropical weather coming their way? Each page includes in-depth, scientific details titled, “Kobee’s Fun Facts,” which expand on the weather events the characters encounter along the way.

“An appealing picture book distinguished by its colorful images, creatively distilled meteorological facts, and simple but dynamic storytelling.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A rare children’s book that gives kids a colorful learning adventure and some weather fun facts parents will enjoy too.” –Rob Marciano | ABC News Senior Meteorologist
