Old turtle swims into his final wave as the sea creatures he has met throughout his life recall how he touched their lives. For instance, the sea otters remember how he loved to have fun and the dolphins remember his curiosity and bravery. So, even though the old turtle has died, he lives on in the heartfelt memories of his many friends. Beautiful illustrations add to this wonderful, touching story perfect; for a child or even an adult dealing with the loss of a loved one.
