Can the smallest turtle make it to safety? Another classic story from the ever-popular Lynley Dodd
Deep in a safe dark hole under the sand lay a nest of turtle eggs. One day they began to hatch. Soon there were dozens of baby turtles all wriggling together up through the sand and away. Except for the smallest turtle. He was late.
This is the tale of the sea and battles the landscape, the weather and hungry seagulls to make it to safety.
