This book took me on an emotional roller coaster ride of ups and downs as Turtle revels in the joy of her beautiful ocean and then is devastated by all the garbage and trash that is floating around. What a wonderful story!
I love that it has an important message about keeping the oceans clean, but it never feels too preachy. The story is light and fun, and there are resources and further information about ocean clean-up and recycling at the back of the book.
The illustrations are lovely with calming blues and greens. There are bright pops of color in the fish and coral, and the art style is soft and wavy. The gorgeous art work along with the compelling story makes this book particularly powerful and enjoyable!
