Today I have the honor of participating in another first – a blog tour – in celebration of TOBY, a new picture book by Oklahoma author Stacy Nyikos.
This was of particular interest to me because I read another of her books, DRAGON WISHES (lent to me and as-of-yet not returned to Gayleen Rabakkuk, but I digress). Anyway, I liked that book very much, even though it hasn’t yet gotten reviewed on this blog.
Does it help my case to announce that today, I just got to 20K on my latest novel? That means My lackadasical approach to blogging isn’t just laziness, right?
Anyway. Back to the book!
TOBY tells the story of a newly hatched sea turtle who finds himself alone in the nest and unsure what to do next. After listening to his heart, he follows his instincts out to the open ocean.On the way, the little guy faces dangers in the form of a pelican, crab, and crocodile. Illustrations by Shawn Sisneros compliments Nyikos’ story with images set on the sandy beach and in the bright blue ocean. TOBY is the third book in her Under the Sea series.
