What happens when a turtle cannot dive and stay underwater? For a creature that spends most of its time in the ocean, sometimes staying submerged for up to five hours at a time, it becomes a matter of life and death. It cannot feed off the algae and sea grasses that grow on the ocean floor. So the reptile swims round and round on the surface, unable to get the nutrients it needs. Getting weaker and weaker, it finally dies a lingering death. Workers in Sohar Port find Tina (literally, 'Turtle in Need of Assistance'), a mature female green turtle, suffering from this 'floating syndrome'; a common cause of death among sea turtles. She could have picked up an infection that made her sick. But most likely she swallowed a plastic bag that looked like a tasty jellyfish - her favourite treat. This is her story.

From the Back Cover:

?Set in the Gulf State of Oman, this meticulously researched children’s tale is both informative and highly entertaining. Turtles need to swim free, roaming far and wide, high and low, if they are to survive. This is the tale of one who could not. Ever since she mistook a plastic bag for a tasty jellyfish, Tina (“Turtle In Need of Assistance”) is doomed to bob around the surface waters of the Arabian Sea, until rescuers come her way.

She now lives with her family in Oman and they retreat to a granite farmhouse in northern Portugal when it gets too hot in the summer. She is currently researching and writing a book on the Arabian horse. Halimah and the Snake is her first book for children.

Susan Keeble - Susan Keeble's distinctive watercolours have been exhibited at galleries internationally, including the Royal Scottish Academy and the International Guild of Artists, and in Dubai, where she lived for five years. She is regularly commissioned to paint the Henley Regatta.
