Interrupted Journey

By Kathryn Lasky
Illustrated by Christopher G Knight

"There’s a sense of wonder in the simple words and the huge, thrilling color pictures in this photo-essay about a vanishing species." — Booklist (starred review)

Limp and frozen, a Kemp’s ridley turtle washes up on Cape Cod. When a boy named Max finds it, the turtle appears to be dead. But is it? Award-winning author Kathryn Lasky and photographer Christopher G. Knight take young readers on a riveting tour that begins on the icy shores of Cape Cod, where expert teams attempt to revive the Kemp’s ridley, and ends on the warm beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, where turtles of this rare breed are born and may return to lay eggs of their own. All sea turtles are threatened or endangered, but the Kemp’s ridley is the most endangered of all — and this awe-inspiring story makes it clear why we should want to protect them.

  • Readers will be fascinated by the story of this endangered species.
