Turtle embryo

Deep within the nest, in the comfort of his egg, Baby Honu slept. And as he slept, he dreamt. He had wonderful dreams, magical dreams, of splendid creatures afloat in starry seas...Baby Honu grew and grew.
-Excerpt from "Baby Honu's Incredible Journey"

"Yee draws in readers through her bright watercolor and soft pastel paintings of luscious tropical settings, soft baby sea turtles' eyes, and treacherous endangering animal faces. Young readers will enjoy this adventurous tale about Hawaii's sea turtles."
