    Animal immigrants and their decendants adventures

    Animellis Island Book One: The Traitor Gator -story is told from the point of view of the common animals and birds. The book is divided in two parts: The first part of the story is set in a specific time period in 1733 when Spain was still a powerful kingdom and had colonies in other continents, and the second part of the story happens 250 later when the animal society, its laws and rules for immigrants are already established. The Animellis Island is now a secluded place and the decendants of the African shipwrecked animals rule it. They have rules like how to treat newcomers, the immigrants, they process them before allowing (or not) them to stay with them in the island.
    The funny process includes a baboon doing a medical exam and the flamingo doing the dental check up... LOL!


    The main conflict starts when an alligator arrived. Alli Gator is not what she seems to act: she is not a nice, friendly immigrant. She has sharp, shiny teeth ... and a plan. The other islanders are concerned having a predator living among them. What will happen to islanders?

    Alli Gator starts stalking the other animals and does not reveal her plans to anyone ... at first. Later on, you will find out her devious plans. Herbert Hippopotamus and his family, Henna and Henry, will be in the middle of the trouble. They are Alli's targets.

    The second book is out soon, too. I can't wait to see what happens to Alli, Herbert, Henna and Henry in the next book!!!

    I really liked the plot and the illustrations.
    If you like fantasy stories, and animals then you will like this book.
    If your child has liked Warriors and Sekeers and Owls of G'hool, then your child will like this book, too.

    Evil alligator, deceitful hyenas and hippopotamuses in trouble

    I like to read good fantasy and fiction. I saw this book in B&N and when I skimmed the pages I was delighted to see art work scattered through out the story. The illustrations and implementation of the art work deserve some major complements. After scanning the pages I turned back to the beginning and read chapter one. It started in 1733 in Spanish colonies and told about how some African animals were loaded to a ship's cargohold. It only took a few moments for me to realize which book I would be purchasing that day. Between the other YA and children books, this was the one book that was more creatively designed and that won me over.

    if you like Seekers and Warrior books then you probably like this animal story, too.
    This first book starts about 250 years ago when a Spanish fleet crashes near Florida's coast. One of the ships had captured animals in the cargo hold and these animals - happy that they were finally free - swam towards the nearby island, called Animellis Island. These ancestors started the island and made up rules and immigration process for any newcomers. And for almost 250 years the islanders and their descendants had been living there in peace and harmony until one day a viscious alligator arrives.
    The island's council does not know what to do with this newcomer. The alligator is a predator... can they let a predator enter the island or not?

    Overall, I would like to give 5 stars for the plot and 5 stars for the characters. I can't wait to see the next book in the series.

    I love the illustrations! I would give them more than 5 stars if possible!!!

    Lovely artwork, funny animal adventure

    I really loved the artwork in this book. It really helped to imagine the story and the animals.
    The story and the characters were funny. I loved the way the animal society was created.
    Alli Gator was the perfect villain.

    It was also very interesting how the story told about the history starting from the Spanish colonization in 1733 in Africa and how they collected trading items and African animals to trade in their other colonies.

    If you like Warriors and Seekers, I'm sure you will find this book series to be your new favorite one.
