Mossy, a turtle with a garden growing on her shell, is taken from her home and new friend to become an exhibit in a museum, until the director''s niece, Tory, notices how sad Mossy is and helps arrange for her to go home.
From the Publisher:
Who will help Mossy return home to Mill Pond?
|Mossy, an amazing turtle with a gorgeous garden growing on her shell, loses her freedom when Dr. Carolina takes her to live in her small Edwardian museum. Visitors flock to see Mossy, but it is Dr. Carolina's niece, Tory, who notices how sad Mossy is. She is missing home and her friend, Scoot.
|Dr. Carolina finds a way to keep the spirit of Mossy alive at the museum. She invites Flora and Fauna to paint Mossy's portrait. Then she and Tory take Mossy home, where Scoot is waiting for her.
|Jan Brett fans will pore over the colorful paintings of Mill Pond and lush borders displaying flowers, ferns, butterflies and birds in contrast to elegant spreads of the museum filled with visitors in stylish Edwardian dress and exquisite borders of shells, rocks, crystals and birds' eggs.
