Baby Honu Saves The Day

Written and Illustrated by Tammy Yee
Island Heritage, 1999

Cover Baby Honu is a tiny green sea turtle. What can he do to rescue a beached dolphin? Follow Baby Honu as he persuades a moray eel, a porcupinefish, a shark and even a humpback whale to help him in his quest. Young children learn that even the smallest efforts can cascade into meaningful consequences.

A helpful glossary teaches young children about Hawaiian marine life.

A puffer fish waking a stingray

WHOOSH, WHOOSH, WHOOSH, WHOOSH! Kokala was so startled that he GULPED and GULPED and GULPED enough sea water to make himself fat and round and prickly! The frightened puffer tumbled right into...sleeping Hihimanu!

-Excerpt from "Baby Honu Saves The Day"

"I think this sequel to 'Baby Honu's Incredible Journey' is her best work to date...Yee's well-structured plot skillfully integrates repetition at every turn, culminating in a fittingly predictable, satisfying ending. Yee also has a great knack for humanizing her colorful images of marine life."
-From The Honolulu Advertiser, March 4, 2000
Featured in "Picks of the Week," Hawaii Tribune-Herald, January 21, 2000.
