Turtle Tug to the Rescue

(3) PS Turtle Tug, half-boat/half-turtle, guards "sea dwellers swimming on by." During a fierce storm, the brave "skipper with flippers" rescues various marine animals and "keeps everyone safe till the typhoon has passed." The simple rhyming text includes some challenging words (e.g., tempestuous), which listeners will understand in context. The mostly gray, blue, and green illustrations effectively convey the story's drama.
