The Turtle Ship
The Turtle Ship is a picture book about a boy named Sun-sin who dares to dream BIG, even though people laugh at him. Inspired by his pet turtle, he enters a national contest for the best battleship design. It’s loosely based on true facts about the Korean hero Admiral Yi Sun-sin and his incredible turtle ship. Brilliant artist Colleen Kong-Savage illustrated the book with exquisite paper collage. You can see more about the book on Lee & Low’s website.
We had an amazing launch party in NYC! About a hundred people showed up, and details are in this blog post.
Next up: Our L.A. Reading/Signing at Children’s Book World, Saturday September 8th at 2:30. Colleen the illustrator will be flying out from NYC for this event! See the invitation below.
