The Brave Turtle

R 119.90

The Brave Turtle (written by B. D. Harris & illustrated by Megan Bird) is an illustrated children's chapter book of family, bravery, and with a great respect for our country's wild waters.

Late one night, Sam rolls off her bed and splash! Her entire room has flooded! Not just her room, but the whole house is filling up with water as the world floods outside. Confused and cold, Sam is rescued by a wise, little turtle called Neville, who takes her along the beautiful underwater highway, teaching her the ways of this watery world.

'Water isn’t cruel nor kind, but if you manage to keep your head, then the water will keep you,’ Neville repeats to Sam through their epic adventure across the newly formed oceans, meeting all sorts of interesting creatures along the way, to find and rescue Sam’s parents, now washed somewhere downstream. 

This book is commissioned and inspired by National Sea Rescue Initiative (NSRI). Profits from this book run back into NSRI, for further sea-inspired projects that benefit children and our country's youth. 

You can also add a "Brave Turtle" soft toy to complete this gift. These Brave Turtles are made of tshwe-tshwe fabric and inside they have a heart made from... you’ll never guess... recycled wetsuits that were worn by the NSRI crew when saving lives.
