A powerful nature story for a young audience. 
Far, far out at sea lives one of the world's most mysterious creatures, the
loggerhead turtle. For thirty years she swims the oceans, wandering
thousands of miles as she searches for food. Then, one summer night, she
lands on a beach to lay her eggs - the very same beach where she herself was
born. Nicola Davies's lyrical text offers fascinating information about the
journey of the tiny, endangered loggerhead, while charming paintings by Jane
Chapman vividly illustrate one turtle's odyssey. 
This "Read, Listen, & Wonder" book includes a read-along audio CD, including
sound effects and a segment with additional facts. 
"If only all natural history books were as well-pitched as this."
