‘The Great Barrier Reef is in grave danger. It’s time to step up.’ — David Attenborough
Rosie aka Song Bird, superhero must save the Great Barrier Reef.
Something weird is happening on Green Turtle Island. Marine creatures have been dying, and now her friends are disappearing.
Rosie travels through a time portal to unlock a secret.
Can Song Bird rescue the Great Barrier Reef before it’s too late?
In her fourth exciting adventure, Rosie Bird aka Song Bird Superhero defends the Great Barrier Reef against her arch enemy Destructo whose evil plan involves destroying Song Bird along with the Reef.
What should have been a pleasant family holiday at a resort on Turtle Island, becomes a battle against evil and a race against time as Song Bird and her friends use their wits and special superpowers to save the Great Barrier Reef.
Great Barrier Reef Rescue is a compelling read. From their arrival in a helicopter that is spinning out of control to Super Bird’s final plummet into the ocean, the friends have one page-turning event after another.
Song Bird no sooner solves one problem than another begins. How can she possibly save the Reef? How can she get out of one more sticky situation alive? Friend or foe —who are those strangers? Who can she trust? You won’t believe how bad it can get.
With the help of her best friends Amy and Ben and her mentor Wonder Girl, Song Bird is determined to save the Great Barrier Reef for future generations. But they can’t do it alone. They urge children everywhere to join them in becoming defenders of the reef. Are you brave enough to join in?
Author Karen Tyrrell has once again captured the hearts and imaginations of children everywhere as Song Bird and her team battle for good over evil and preservation over destruction. In the back of the book, she provides information about the Great Barrier Reef, including its threats and actions we can take to help preserve it. Free notes for teachers and fun stuff for kids are available on her website.
