This lyrical and informative look at the elusive and endangered loggerhead turtle is sure to delight young nature lovers.

Far, far out at sea lives one of the world's most mysterious creatures, the loggerhead turtle. For thirty years she swims the oceans, wandering thousands of miles as she searches for food. Until, one summer night, she lands on a beach to lay her eggs—the very same beach where she herself was born. Nicola Davies's lyrical text offers fascinating information about the journey of the tiny, endangered loggerhead, while charming paintings by Jane Chapman vivdly illustrate one turtle's journey.

This book is a great introduction to an interesting ocean creature, the loggerhead turtle, and its life cycle! The illustrations clearly followed through the life cycle.
