6th Grade English

I'm confused on what the direct object is in the following sentence:

Read "King of the Wind," and learn more about the adventures of Agba and his horse.

  1. Ms. Sue

    The direct object is "King of the Wind." It answers the question WHAT after the verb, "read."

    Note: The verb "learn" doesn't have a direct object in this sentence. The words following that verb are in the prepositional phrase, "about the adventures of Agba and his horse."

    Okay, I understand that now. Thank you for your help.
