Lamont Books Reviews Turtle Trackers

March 7, 2018

Lamont Books Review of Turtle Trackers:









Samantha Wheeler really does have a wonderful way of blending a real life conservation issue into a story that will appeal to readers.


Isaac is a fabulous kid! Not only is he acting way beyond his years with all that he has to do to help his Mum keep the caravan park running, he is totally passionate about the turtles that nest on the beach near their home, and in particular, the impact that others are having on their well being. 


You will absolutely get caught up in his enthusiasm, but his passion and eagerness to help does not come without issues! 


There are strong themes of conservation, but also of friends and family relationships, as Isaac and his mum work through their grief of losing their husband and dad, and trying to find a balance and happiness again in their lives. 


It is full of fabulous facts and the reader will learn things about turtles that they never knew! A thoroughly enjoyable read for middle primary and above.
