Voyage of Turtle Rex

Voyage of Turtle Rex

By:  Kurt Cyrus

Sploosh! Fizz! Swish! The prehistoric ocean is a dangerous place for a baby sea turtle. But after she emerges from her egg, the treacherous waters are her goal. Swimming through the swirling waves and dodging larger sea creatures, she finds a resting place deep below. There she waits, until she grows into the majestic sea turtle that returns to the sand to lay her eggs and begin the cycle again.

This journey of a small creature in the oceanic world of the dinosaurs is a perfect mix of scientific integrity and dramatic storytelling.

    "Like its subject, the rhymed text moves with grand deliberation, carrying the primeval story line to a clever transition between that ancient era and ours....Never has time travel been so easy or so immersive."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

    "In this companion to Tadpole Rex, a prehistoric turtle hatches on a 'primeval beach' and slips beneath the waves. Cyrus's illustrations incorporate dramatic scale, movement, and majesty: the spreads are a marvel of lighting and texture… A moving and truly epic journey."."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

    "The book will hook insatiable young dinosaur fanatics looking for readable, factual stories."—School Library Journal, starred review
