My Big Adventure


Bulacan - Philippines


Nov. 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Lucy the Tortoise actually escaped from the backyard of a Colorado home and her adventure story made international news.  Now Lucy’s story is available for everyone to read through her recently published book - Lucy the Tortoise: My Big Adventure co-written by Lucy and Sheila Rockley.   In her tale, Lucy the Tortoise tells young readers how a chance encounter with a mischievous back-flipping bunny leads her on an escapade out of her backyard and into an unknown world where she loses her way, gets in some deep water, learns some very valuable lessons and becomes a feature on the local news. Come along on Lucy’s adventure as she encounters the long green legs of praying mantis, plays hide-and-seek with a prairie dog, and journeys to find the path that will lead her back home.

This book is based on the true story of the authors seven-year-old pet tortoise’s long road home after disappearing from her yard outside of Denver, Colorado. Imagined from Lucy’s point of view, the resulting story is an adventure tale that will excite children about the animal world with its intriguing facts about camouflage, games, and different habitats.

Lucy gives her recount of the events as she experienced them for the readers teaching children about talking to strangers and the bad things that can happen if they do, such as getting led away from home among other troubles.  Children can retain more details about morals and life lessons if those lessons are in a cartoony format that stimulates their interest.  Lucy’s artwork is very reminiscent of currently popular children’s programming on channels such as PBS, Disney and Cartoon Network, though not officially related to any properties on those channels.  Children can let their imaginations take control while reading Lucy the Tortoise while parents are assured the lessons are valuable and easy to understand.

Lucy the Tortoise – My Big Adventure is now available to purchase in both physical book format and as an eBook on  Even better news is that the eBook will be available for a FREE download on Tuesday, November 20th.

And for those living in Colorado the book can be purchased at RockleyArts at 13640 Orchard Parkway in Westminster, CO and at Rockley Music at 8555 W. Colfax Ave in Lakewood, CO.  For any organization interested in an interview or book signing with the real life Lucy the Tortoise, please contact Becky Bechle for scheduling.
