Product Description

I am Turtle.
My eyes are black, my shell is green.
Wide oceans call me, as I lie curled in the dark.
Tides roar in my blood, surf pounds in my heart.

A lyrical journey of the life of the Green Sea Turtle from hatchling beneath the sands of a coral beach, through wanderings at sea, to adulthood and returning to lay eggs of its own.

Award winning illustrator Kim Toft's magnificent silk paintings perfectly capture the precarious life of the Green Turtle, while author Alan Brown's poignant, mythical story sounds a hymn to this ancient but now endangered creature.

"Turtle's Song is the life story of the Green Sea Turtle. The work is one of the most visually gorgeous picture books to appear in Australia. Kim Michelle Toft's silk paintings fully conveying the sense of the tropical sea." The Sunday Age - Sept 2001


"Turtle's Song " - UQP 2001 (now in its second reprint) also in South Korea.
