Lucille Lost: A True Adventure by Margaret GeorgeI gave to my third-grader for Easter because he recently got a tortoise as a pet. This is the story of Lucille, a Burmese tortoise whose family goes on vacation. Lucille and her tortoise friend Tanky go to stay with another family and their tortoise, Troilus. Lucille escapes from the tortoise pen and gets lost.
Not only does the book have beautiful illustrations, it is filled with great tortoise facts on the bottom of each page. And even though I didnt realize it when I bought the book, it was set in Madison, WI (which is where we live) so that made it even more interesting for my son!
Margaret George is the best-selling author of several historical fiction novels including The Autobiography of Henry the VIII. Lucille Lost is her first and so far only childrens book.
