About the Book

Written by Margaret George and Christopher J. Murphy; Illustrated by Debra Bandelin and Bob Dacey

Lucille, a pet Burmese tortoise, has found a way out of her safe pen. Now she’ll have the adventure she’s always wanted! After meeting a nice, old tortoise, and a not-so-nice snapping turtle in a nearby forest, Lucille discovers that adventure can be more scary than fun. And little does she know but her human family is heartbroken she is missing and has organized a neighborhood search. Will they ever find her?

Based on true events, this charming story is complemented by interesting tortoise facts and gorgeous illustrations that fill the pages with playful details from a tortoise’s point of view.


“This fact-laced, handsomely illustrated episode follows a young pet tortoise….adds up to an engaging mix of science and story.” – Kirkus Reviews
