"Turtle is a short and succinct but comprehensive book covering a wide range of turtle-related topics. . . . Turtle is extremely well-researched and has in-depth references. What really lifts this book are the 108 illustrations (89 in color), which are scattered through the seven chapters. . . . Packed full of fascinating snippets of information. . . . A thoroughly enjoyable read."
"An informative and entertaining book about one of the world’s most iconic creatures. Captivating illustrations and spectacular photographs augment scholarly but accessible writing to produce a perfect blend."
