A Spirited Journey Around the Globe: THE ROUND THE WORLD WANDERER Book Review

Updated: Nov 13, 2023

Today, I'm excited to be a part of THE ROUND THE WORLD WANDERER by Sandra Marichal and Fanny Ozda's virtual book tour sponsored by Rockstar Book Tours. Please find my review of this spirited journey around the globe and be sure to enter the giveaway!



My Review:


In "The Round the World Wanderer," readers are taken on a gripping adventure that transcends the boundaries of ordinary life. The main character's journey is not just about exploring the beauty of different lands but also about facing the unpredictable and sometimes dangerous elements of the open sea.

One of the most exhilarating moments in the book is when the main character, amidst their global journey, has to confront the formidable force of a hurricane. The vivid storytelling skillfully conveys the tension and uncertainty of the situation, making readers feel the heart-pounding intensity of the storm. Marichal's words and Ozda's illustrations combine to create a truly immersive experience as the character battles the elements and, ultimately, triumphs over the tempest. This encounter with a hurricane serves as a powerful reminder of the resilience of the human spirit and the determination needed to overcome life's challenges.

Furthermore, "The Round the World Wanderer" offers readers a breathtaking encounter with nature's majesty as the main character crosses paths with a pod of magnificent whales. The descriptions and illustrations of these awe-inspiring creatures bring their grandeur to life, allowing readers to share in the character's sense of wonder and appreciation for the beauty of the natural world. It's a poignant moment that highlights the profound connection between humans and the environment, emphasizing the importance of preserving our planet's wonders.

Sandra Marichal's storytelling and Fanny Ozda's artistry shine in these remarkable moments of adventure and natural beauty. These elements not only enrich the narrative but also add depth to the overarching message of embracing life's extraordinary experiences. "The Round the World Wanderer" is a tapestry of exploration, survival, and a profound appreciation for the wonders that the world has to offer, making it a truly captivating and unforgettable reading experience. This author encourages readers to embrace the unpredictable and revel in the extraordinary, leaving the reader with this final thought:

Listen, kid. When you grow up, don’t do what
everyone else does. Go out in the wild. Go
on adventures. Go explore. And if you get
the chance, sail around the world, until you
find somewhere or someone to stop for.
