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.

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.

Illustrated with Kim Toft's stunning paintings on silk.

"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
