In this adventure Queen Vernita and Carl take a coach trip up the coastline of the Oceaneers Kingdom. Queen Vernita and Carl visit Twelve new friends during the twelve months of the year. In each month they spend their days exploring caverns, tide pools, swimming in the ocean and camping in the Redwood forest. In February, when they visited Stacy they learned about the jellyfish that lived in the tide pools where Stacy lived. They learned that jelly fish are 95% water, and that most jellyfish do not have brains. The box Jelly fish has evolved to have four information processing systems to manage their 24 eyes. In April when Spring came Queen Vernita and Carl visited with Claudia. During their visit they learned about Sea lions. They learned that Sea Lions are related to Walrus' and Seals.

It was such an incredible experience. They soon traveled to the caverns along the coastline. They explored the caverns using only a candle. Here they learned about Stalagmites and Stalactites.

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite Once again readers set out on a journey with Queen Vernita, the queen of Oceaneers kingdom and her good friend Carl. They planned to visit 12 friends and stay with each one for a month, learning about where they live. They spent January with Stacy, learning about jellyfish. In February, they learned about elephant seals while visiting with Arianna. March took Queen Vernita and Carl to visit with Nic; she taught them about sea stars. April took the queen and Carl up the coast to visit with Claudia and learn about sea lions. May took them to study stalagmites and stalactites with Martha. In June, Richard took the queen and Carl to explore his favorite cave. The month of July was spent studying sand dollars with Jose. In August, they headed to the mountains to study the Redwood forest with Victoria. Studying Octopus with Brian was the highlight of September. Eddie taught them all about Pelicans in October. Sand crabs and sea anemones with Madison and Blake rounded out their year. The queen and Carl were sad their journey was over but were excited to begin planning their next one.  Queen Vernita Explores the Oceaneer’s Coastline by author Dawn Menge is the fifth book in this highly successful series. I always enjoy the Queen Vernita books because they are fun and educational at the same time. Pam Snyder has provided bright, colorful and whimsical illustrations that complement the text. The plot is interesting and the story informs and teaches children without them even knowing it. Queen Vernita Explores the Oceaneer’s Coastline will make a great addition to a classroom or a child’s bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Magical, Whimsical, Witty, educational fun Ride!, December 15, 2013 Queen Vernita has a list, not just any list, it's a list that contains each month of the year, where she chooses to invite a different friend to visit for thirty days of that month, and together they learn about many different animals. Queen Vernita is cleverly written with a well thought out plot. This book is riddled with well researched, educational fun facts and I highly recommend it for any child's book shelf. Author Dawn Menge does a fabulous job of mixing whimsical with magic in this highly entertaining story. Pick it up, it's a wonderful book your children won't want to put down.
