In this timeless classic by the famed author of Hairy Maclary, a baby turtle makes a perilous journey to the sea.

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?

From Lynley Dodd, the creator of the much-loved Hairy Maclary and Friends series.

Reviews

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.
