Become our Go To book for baby gifts & showers

Love this book. Even if you didn't grow up in the Clearwater area, it is a great story that plants the seeds of conversation in our next generation. We've given away 3 or 4 in the past 6 months and will do more. The author is great & accessible and was willing to autograph each copy we purchased. Nice touch. Highly recommend this and the fact that the proceeds go back to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium is even better.

Great story with a real life lesson!

Captain Tortuga will capture the imagination of children while giving them an insight into the life of sea turtles and the man made perils that they face. The book provides an education for children while being entertaining as well.
