Turtle’s Song

Dispatched 7-10 business days

Turtle’s Song is a lyrical journey of the life of a Green Turtle from a hatchling beneath the sand of a coral beach, through wanderings at sea, to adulthood and returning to lay eggs of its own. The vivid and exquisite images combined with the simple but rhythmic prose, makes the reading of Turtle’s Song an utter delight.
