Once school is over, Penny travels every summer to her grandfather’s beach house, where she studied endangered species. On her first night there, something crazy happens. Penny wakes up to find a bunch of little turtles crawling around her floor. They are covered in soft flakes.
In the morning, Penny is surprised to discover the baby turtles can talk! They follow her around as she makes a sandcastle, and Penny becomes best friends with the baby turtles. They do everything together. When Penny plans to take them home as pets, her father tells her these are special, rare turtles seen only every twenty years.
These turtles are endangered, so Penny now learns an important lesson about taking care of and respecting creatures in the wild. Ten Little Flakey Turtles teaches children everywhere that some animals cannot be pets but must be protected!
