The story of how The Turtle who ate a Balloon, is rescued by a baby humpback whale, and helped by Spike the Barracuda, Darth Vader the Grouper and the aquarists at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo. Even Mr BUTT the Bermuda Underwater Terrifying Troll gets involved when he calls for a Big Thing under his bridge at Flatts to discuss the problem. There’s excitement as the turtle is blown out to sea from the Aquarium after a hurricane. Disaster strikes again when the turtle is tangled in discarded fishing line. Only Umbriago El Dragon from Castle Island can rescue the turtle!
A cautionary tale about the dangers posed to marine creatures, this children’s book based in Bermuda has an accompanying audio book read aloud by the author and the illustrator.
