In this timeless classic by the famed author of Hairy Maclary, a baby turtle makes a perilous journey to the sea.
Lynley Dodd's classic story about a little turtle who hatches late, and must make a dangerous dash to the sea all by himself.
The words in his head became stronger than ever,
'To the SEA - to the SEA.'
The smallest turtle is the last of his family to set out on the journey to the sea. The sand is hot and the danger is great - will he make it to the safety of the ocean?
A beautiful story to read aloud, with illustrations that are sure to awaken and stimulate a child's interest in the wonders of nature.
From Lynley Dodd, the creator of the much-loved Hairy Maclary and Friends series.
“Lynley Dodd’s picture books are great fun to read aloud...How can you resist language like, “So away he went, skitterscatter…down a gravelly hole…through some prickly grass….” The rhyme, rhythm, and repetition in this story make it fun, too.”
