Overview

From the award-winning creator of I’M THE BIGGEST THING IN THE OCEAN comes an inspiring tale of friendship and belonging that’s perfect for fans of THE SNAIL AND THE WHALE, OWEN AND MZEE, and Oliver Jeffers’s LOST AND FOUND.

Turtle is big. But the ocean is bigger. And Turtle is all alone. Until four shipwrecked folks–a bear, an owl, a frog, and a cat–climb to safety on his shell. Before long, they’re fast friends, and the sea doesn’t seem so vast anymore. But when Frog confides that he misses his family, Turtle doesn’t understand. Isn’t he their family? And when the group decides to sail for home, will Turtle be left behind? Never fear–a surprise on the horizon promises friends, family, and a home at last. Uplifting and heartfelt, this is a book about the power of friendship and making a home of one’s own.
