Elizabeth received a review copy of this book.
‘Go, Hermie! go’ I whispered.
‘No, mine is going to win,’ said my best friend Emely.
This is Fish Kid and the Turtle Torpedo and it is about Bodhi and Emely. They are on a vacation in the Maldives and they find a turtle that is sick because it can’t swim underwater or dive.
Bodhi (Fish Kid) cannot carry Emely and the turtle back to their island to show Bodhi’s dad who could help. So Bodhi just takes the turtle and leaves Emely behind at the beach island.
Is the turtle going to survive? Will Emely get home?
I love this book! That is why I give this book 10/10! I love when they help the turtle. I like that the author introduced real animals in Fish Kid Fact pages such as the spinner dolphins and black tip reef sharks.
