Product Overview

"A visually stunning sea turtle odyssey . . . chock full of science facts for young readers." --Dr. Edith Widder, president, Ocean Research Conservation Association This saltwater adventure begins as a sea turtle hatchling makes a ninety-second mad dash from the nest to the water''s edge. At times suspenseful and always entertaining, this twenty-five-year journey follows the hatchling as she grows into a three-hundred-pound swimming machine. Illustrations dripping in a cool pallet of ocean blues and greens plunge you deep into the abyss as the turtle migrates from her Florida home to the Mediterranean Sea and mysteriously back to Florida, where she builds a nest for her own hatchlings. Determination and cleverness help the turtle mature from a playful adolescent to a wise adult. Janeen Mason introduces young readers to the endangered loggerhead turtle and offers a glossary, enforcing new vocabulary relevant to the aquatic environment. A "factoid" section printed on the end pages provides interesting and enlightening turtle information readers of all ages will find fascinating.
