4.0

I enjoy Michael Slack’s illustrations and wordplay in this (and Elecopter). With fun rhymes and bold full page images, Turtle Tug is an exciting story to read aloud, especially to a young child who likes turtle characters and rescue stories.

From the author/illustrator of Elecopter comes another rhyming tale of an animal/emergency vehicle hybrid out to save the day! I never would have expected that to be such a winning formula, but my kids love it! Turtle Tug certainly follows the pattern of Elecopter, but with a very different setting and very different animals involved, it doesn’t feel repetitive.
