By Wilfrid Swancourt Bronson, Author and Illustrator

A humorous, accurate account of the instincts and habits of turtles for young readers.

“This is another delightfully illustrated book by Bronson, who has a knack for capturing nature with light illustrations and easy words. For youngsters who like turtles, this first nature guide packs a lot of information. What do turtles eat? How are their babies hatched? These are only a few of the questions posed, and answered. In large type, beginning readers (who just might be budding biologists) can do research into these intriguing reptiles themselves. They’ll see what a turtle’s neck looks like when pulled inside the shell and what a turtle burrow looks like. They’ll also learn how they’re different from tortoises.” (“Book Chat,” Enchantment)


What do turtles eat? How are their babies hatched? Why can a turtle pull his head inside his shell? What kinds of turtles make the best pets? How should pet turtles be fed and where should they be kept? All these and many other questions are answered in this natural science picture book for young readers. As in “Pinto’s Journey,” “Starlings” and “Coyotes,” also by Wilfrid Bronson and published by Sunstone Press, the text is in large, clear type, and there are many illustrations on each page.

Wilfrid Swancourt Bronson wrote his first book at the age of eight. Called Animal People, it started like this: “This book is for children who are interested in animals and birds. It has verey good pictures in it and children can understand it verey easily.” He later learned to spell, and wrote and illustrated over twenty books for children with “verey good pictures” that they could understand. Young readers everywhere are glad he did.
