The Guild of Independent Children’s Books presents their list of books with a theme of eco-consciousness. Some books may represent the other themes (empowerment, diversity, multicultural) as well and will have a correlating star listed.
Written in the poetic form of haiku and illustrated in watercolors, you are invited to come adventuring with Piratess Tilly, her rescued best friend, a koala named Yuki, and her band of international orphaned brothers. As budding naturalists, they are all too eager for their expedition to the GalApagos Islands! While documenting flora and fauna, they spot baby giant tortoises being kidnapped . . . by pirates! How do Tilly, Yuki and the brothers save the turtles?
