In this book, the main character, Calypso Blue, is stuck on an island along with her whole family. When the book begins, they are living in a shack, trying to survive in a jungle with no recollection of where they are and what they are supposed to be doing. In this realistic fantasy book, there is a lot of adventure, mystery, and a touch of magic as the Blue family tries to figure out what their goggles are for and how they are supposed to use them.
When I first started reading Goggles Gone Strong: Mighty Monday, I loved it immediately! I liked how the Blue family interacted with the island and its people while trying to figure out why are on the island and what their big safety goggles are for. I liked how S.M.W. Claw wrote the book so it feels like you are with Calypso, the main character, and you are learning with her.
I definitely recommend this book for all, but I think kids between the age of 8-15 would like it the most. There were many things I liked about this book, such as the way S.M.W. Claw put the time and place Calypso was at before every chapter, how the book started with the Blue family trying to keep everything in running order at their shack in the middle of a jungle, and above all, how the book is different than many other books in that both reader and characters learn together.
