Marion Coste describes the life cycle of the Hawaiian green sea turtle--from the emergence of the female from the water to scoop a nest in the sand, to the return of the hatchlings to the sea, to the perils of the feeding grounds, and return to the nesting beaches. The second part of the book provides further scientific information about the habitat, feeding habits, adaptations, and breeding cycle of the green turtle.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A smoothly written narrative that begins when Hawaii's honu, or green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas)--a species that may measure 40 inches and weigh 400 pounds--comes ashore to lay eggs. Coste describes the honu's return to the deep sea, the uses of the turtle by early Hawaiians, and recent pressures that endanger it, then returns to the newly hatched young, making their journey to the sea. The book's second half, a more direct and detailed presentation of the same information, adds more specific facts on habitat, nesting behavior, adaptations, human impact, protection, etc.; the book as a whole would have been more effective if the two had been integrated, or if the first part had been livelier and more informative and the second merely a supplement or appendix. Still, the information is interesting and authentic, and Gray's watercolor illustrations of the shoreline and the clumsy turtles and the other wildlife are evocative and appealing. A good contribution to the endangered species shelf. Glossary; brief list for children ``To Learn More,'' with some Hawaiian materials, including a video. (Nonfiction. 5-11) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
