My Review:

Full of imagination and positivity, The Magic Sea Turtle tells a charming tale about a dream coming true with delight and surprise. Myrtle is a little girl who dares to dream and wishes to be queen. On a beautiful sunny day, her accidental fall off the cloud leads her to Max the magic sea turtle and his friends, who collectively save Myrtle's life and welcome her to an entrancing world makred with freedom and friendliness. Could this be where Myrtle truly belongs?

Told through short, lyrical sentences, Myrtle's fascinating sea adventure motivates young readers to dream big and be open to new experiences that might transform their lives. Meanwhile, it gets them aquainted with a good variety of adorable, hospitable sea animals like sea turtle, sea otter, seagulls and dolphins, who serve as role models to demonstrate the power of kindness, friendship, and teamwork. It may also provide parents and educators with an opportunity to teach about sea life conservation and environmental protection.

The book excels in its dreamy and dynamic illustrations, which artfully combine vibrant colors, vivid expressions, and elements of nature and magic. The paintings and narrative weave neatly together to create an ideal world full of harmony and vitality.

Poetically written and playfully illustrated, The Magic Sea Turtle is sure to capture the heart of little dreamers, adventurers, and animal lovers.

Once upon a time, Myrtle chased her dreams–dreams of being a queen with a crown that sparkled like the moon. One day, she tumbles down, down, down into the sea. Max helps rescue her and a magic carpet flies her to a place even more amazing than her sandcastle dreams and she discovers an entire ocean of possibilities! There are dolphins who welcome her and a friendly otter with the biggest smile. They can teach her to swim and enjoy the day. Another magical glow surrounds Myrtle when she decides to stay and wishes to be a sea turtle like Max.
