Maya & Filipppo See Impossible Things in the Garden City

Genre: Children's Picture Book
Source: I received a copy to facilitate my review

From Goodreads:
Embark on an exciting adventure with Maya and Filippo as they travel around the globe on board the Fun Princess - a cruise ship full of surprises. Discover their fascinating ports of call, join them in activities at sea and explore the remarkable world they create for themselves through their thoughts and feelings.

The children dock in Christchurch. Before getting off the ship, at the youth club, they draw things they would like to see in the future. Their fellow passengers think Maya and Filippo are crazy until all of them see some things they had never expected.

My Thoughts:
In this adventurous book we find our traveling friends visiting the city of Christchurch in New Zealand. The nickname for this city is the Garden City.  While Maya and her brother wait to dock they join other kids in drawing pictures of things they hope to see.  When they share their pictures with the rest of the kids they are told that their pictures are silly and that they are impossible.  This does not discourage Maya or Filippo.  Read the book to see what wonderful things they find in the Garden City.  
As always this is a wonderful book that teaches you about a special place.  This book like the others in the series has a wonderful message.  Just because someone tells you something is impossible doesn't mean you need to believe them.  No one knows everything.  You will be surprised at what you can find in the world.
This is another great story to share with the grandkids.  Go and get yours now.
