MossyBook - 2012
Scoot has never seen a turtle as beautiful as Mossy. But as Mossy walks toward him, her amazing garden swaying back and forth on her shell, someone picks her up and puts her in a basket. Dr. Carolina has found the perfect exhibit for her museum. She and her niece, Tory, take Mossy there, and a large glass-enclosed case becomes Mossy's new home. How she misses sitting on her rock by the waterfall at Lilypad Pond. But most of all, she misses Scoot. As more and more visitors come to admire Mossy, Tory realizes that Mossy is sad. She is sure that Mossy wants to go home. How Mossy gets back to Scoot and how Dr. Carolina finds a way to keep the spirit of Mossy alive in the museum makes for a most satisfying and surprising ending. Jan Brett fans will pore over the colorful paintings of Lilypad Pond, the lush borders displaying flowers, ferns, butterflies and birds and the museum scenes filled with visitors in stylish Edwardian dress. Mossy and Scoot are sure to become favourite characters for all ages in this unique story of love, loyalty and home.
